Offering

in my apartment’s

hidden corners,

i have placed

two ceramic bowls,

containing hopes.

cobalt, periwinkle;

lotus flower patterns.

two smoothed,

polished stones:

first, amethyst.

etched upon

its surface,

                            happiness

second, white quartz.

etched upon

its surface,

                            dream

two butterflies.

flight. color.

organic tobacco.

earth. breath.
