The Wisdom of August

I wake up on the threshold of a prayer,
knowing that the words “Dear Creator…”
are hyperlinks opening a thousand doors. 
I awake knowing that when we speak or think
those words, we shift worlds, change the direction of time,
move in a dance that unlocks, releases -
now I can’t express it – the pathway I saw,
that liminal gate; all the precise silver
verbs slip away from me.  What I have left:
Dear Creator.  I repeat it to myself
in bed, in the garden’s green light,
my face full of sun.  Try to follow the words
back in, breadcrumbs back into the mystery.
