Desert communion

Along this pilgrimage made

with candles lit by the sun, vast desert communion

seeking connection to the one, here in this fiery church

where I have found lost souls, sun bleached bones

drinking of sun and moon, coyote haunting calls

saguaros wandering to and fro

all are parched for water

cactus leaning, I am kneeling

here at this earthly altar

awaiting resurrection

I have come to pray

watching nights and days

like fires, burn away
