make me a space to be, god [poem]

make me a space
space to breathe
space to be, god

        make me a space amongst sturdy pines and cedar, spruce
to sacred hills and silver boulders
blowing bells, bansuri
water cold, original ice
discipline

himalayan stream, become
        om namah shivaya
I ask not of any earthly lover but of god

        make me a space on ochre earth and sienna sand
to the dunes and gray green cacti
whistling rattle whips
ancient earth, eternal light
discipline

desert wind, become
         om namah shivaya
I ask not of any earthly lover but of god

make me a space
space to breathe
space to be, god
