days

these are our high and holy days
the ones where we shake
the night’s rain from blossoms
so they might yield their scent
to our breath,
the ones where we wake to the sound
of smartphones proclaiming the day,
(and the hour and the weather)
the ones we make toast for,
early morning iron pans
on gas burners – soft speak
and warm tea.
these are our high and holy days
slipping seamless into traffic
hands cool on steering wheels
as we drive east
face to the rising sun.
these are our high and holy days
early morning market days
driving rhythm school days
late nights on the computer days.
these are our high and holy days
sunbird in the coral tree days
wrangling the internet days
planting seeds and changing tyre days
watching for the moon days.
these are our high and holy days
air so thick with spring days
that our feet grow roots on the path
while flowers teach us to breathe.
these are our high and holy days.
all of them.
