By Susan Carman
Grace flows over me
like warm honey,
coating jagged edges within.
I kneel on grass anointed with dew
to worship at this altar, drink
of its silence. Kaleidoscopes
of lavender, lilac, and fuchsia
cascade over rocks near water's edge.
The lake exhales foggy breath
in morning's yawning glow,
floating ducks cluster,
still as decoys.
