Be named


Be named slant-slipping sunlight

though forks in branches, river-glints.

Be named brief luminosity of sky

before falling of dusk.

Be named gifts of wind –

petal scents, salt scents,

breath of river deep as earth.

Be named rising of wind,

hush of grass, heart-longing

of the soil for rain.

Be named dancing pitter-patter,

sullen slow- soft falling,

grey monsoon shroud.

Be named trees in water, trees

in wind, trees shedding leaves,

new- leaf sprouting.

Be named interstices of in- breath

and out, and all spaces

never noticed.

Be named, blessed beloved one,

the secret name that will bid you rise

and take your place in the turning circle

of the world.
