Ganga Prayers

December 13, 2016





Set fire to the water
From the shapeshifting shores

Of mothers body
Shipping prayers
to calmer places
in sailboats
made of sticks

surrender
the fate
of my direction
to the wavering hands
of wild blue winds

she offers nothing straight
tonight
just ripples
breaking evenly
outward
in all directions

from the center
of a sodden ship
