A Tuesday Examen

lily pads





Scattered across lonely seas

dwell the lilies of desire.

Dotted between the balancing


green are other frondish delights 

with fingers extended on palms

upraised, deterred by nothing


but the gentle floating away of

newly made ripples, starting

from a center and pushing out


to the edges where the shoreline

awaits to receive what waves may come.

They have made big what once


was small, white-capped wonder

from still and never-sunken petals.

The end exhumes the beginning


but little beginnings brought

such proud endings, humbled

by endless sandy sleep. Here


God is waiting.

God is watching.

God is cooking fish.
