It's Quiet Now

It’s quiet now
 
Here
 
Where waters lap among the reeds
 
I can hear myself think
 
And a hundred impossible flights of fancy are possible
 
Here at the laver
 
Before the temple of God
 
- the fire pops –
 
And smoke stirred by a vagrant breeze
 
Ascends like incense
 
Bearing my thoughts like pristine prayers
 
Heavenward to Nature’s God
 
Alone at twilight
 
Til nearby song birds sing
 
And I look across nature into the eternity
 
Nature's changing face reveals
 
And I wait ‘tween the promise and the dream
