When it Shows Up

When it shows up,
you should go outside and make offerings;
you never know what form a god, or
goddess, will take.

Sometimes it’s a wild thing, but more
likely a cat, or a dog,
once it was a sheep, really,
today, a white pigeon
- not a dove -

that I gave seed in my grandmother’s
cereal bowl, painted by hand with a fruit decor,
by someone who might now be
someone’s angel, or just gone,

I won’t claim to know how these
things work, although I do have
my ideas. As, I’m sure you have your own.

Who has lost their way?

Standing on my door step, I often wonder
which one of us

most longs to be found.
