POST 114: Sunrise, moonset, prayer, South Carolina, poem

by Carol Bass

OUT WANDERING in the Cosmos

Just around 7am
when all these miracles are going on
and I am wandering behind the house
in front of the house attempting
to just make a note of this day
so I could give it to you far away

the Yellow Bellied sap sucker flew down
to his palmetto and joined me
and the air absorbed us
into its mix of mist
and dew and we
left the earth for a bit
