     A Suggested Inca Prayer for the Goddess of Nature

You gave us a universe of utility in every reed.
There is a community of reeds for the duck,
ibis and the dragonfly.
The swamp is our salvation.

To understand the earth look to the ceramic.

The mud dauber wasp
is the wisest master of ceramics.
A copy of the next rainbow
can be found in the footprint of the snail.
There is something peaceful and very celestial
about green celery.

Pache Mama you gave us all of this
to keep from being alone.

Steve Barfield, North Palm Beach, Florida
