“Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed.” ~Francis Bacon

I don't recall
How old I was
Precisely how
Old I was
When I asked
My mother
How she
Did it.

I know I was
In elementary
School…
No more
Than first
Or second
Grade…
Because I
Had asked
Her to make
A donut hole
In the sky
For field day.

A child
Knows no such
Limits as
Grown-ups do.

“How do you
do it Mom?”

She shrugged
And said
Seriously,
“I hold it
in the back of my
mind…
until it happens.”

It was all
The instruction
I had ever
Received.

As I grew
I came to know
The sky
As an extension
Of my Beloved
Like a fingertip,
He would
Kiss me
With sunbeams
And play with
My hair
Like a mother,
Or reveal
The full moon
Through cloud
Cover to make
Me smile
If I was sad…
What a lover
Shehe is!
Would or could
A human lover
Do such things
To make me
Smile?

It is unfair
To compare.

To say
That I command
The sky is false.
I ask my
Beloved gently
With the image
In my mind…
“Can I do
this?
Will this disturb
Your plans
My love?”

Will the lovers
Meet if not
Forced into
The shop
To shelter
From the rain?

Will the destinies
Of those
So moved
Be forever shifted?
Can the land
Survive the momentary
Lack of your
Sweet rain?

If the answer is
Yes…
The sky moves.

If the answer is
No…
I feel a gentle hug
Back…
I'm sorry
My love
Not today.

I have heard
From others
Of so much
Fear of messing
Up the balance
Of nature…
But when
You ask
And act
With love
Nature
Cannot
Misunderstand you.
She knows.
And She
Makes up for
What we
Lack.

If you've
The mind
And heart
Of a child
Then this
Is all the
Instruction
You will
Ever need.
