 Spirit Chimes

Riding an Arabian Horse


for Laura


Written on a nebula
of cursed sand,
verses of opal and flesh

erode the moon,
shame her like betrayal,
shrink her to a puddle
of tinsel,

and make me an angel,

ascending and dreaming
Bedouin dreams,
sifting through words
to match this galloping Muse.

I will bless the one slender
breeze in the hollow air,

I will bless the clear
vastness where a ballet
was born-the trot of a
gazelle and the limbs of
a goddess

too beautiful for our
disposable lives.


Patricia Joan Jones
