Meditation
By Patty Cole

Untangle my mind.
Untangle my soul.
Untangle my heart.

Let me breathe you in
O breath of life;
come to me as a sparrow
to the branch in spring.

I open the window. Your spirit
comes gushing on the wind.
I am healed.

Resurrect in me the happy heart
of a child. Soak me in your honey.

And I will love like a well
of water that overflows, flooding
every crevice of every crack
of every parched life.
