Incense sticks smoke

fragrant

a soft breeze pushes

small floating lamps

pushing flower petals

out of their way

upon the milk stained waters

of the Ganges

chants of mantras echo

over and across

as the sun slips under.

New blossoms open

upon a sunny spring day

azure skies above.

I believe

in the unbelievable

a foundation

with footings

anchored upon bedrock

strength

not my own.

Rain spatters the glass

of the windshield on the bus

wet passengers ride.

The fly floats with the current

down the rocky turbulence

to spin through the deceitful

eddy in the current

light rain spots the river’s

smooth surface

hiding the lurking trout beneath.

An empty house waits

for one man and his canine,

a fire in the hearth.

The moon this morning

sat high in the dark spring sky

sentinel of dawn.

Crows call from the woods

inside their church of forest,

pine tree sacristy.

Rain taps the flashing

upon the back porch window

subtle spring music.
