Fickle Faith

I used to be a deist.


I tried to bury myself underground,


so that I could share the roots with the trees


until my feet fell asleep


and the pain was too much to bare.


  Ting.


          Ting.


 


I used to be a hippie,


bowing to mother earth.


        A flower child,


        tree hugger,


freak of ­— nature enthusiast.


 


I tried to be an atheist


when judgments


were as non-existent


as the deity in my dreams.


 


I stopped asking


and started listening.


Instead of prayer,


I turned to meditation


and the soft bell rang


as my feet rested on the insides of my thighs,


as if reaching for my soul,


breathe


                       


            in


                       


 


                          out
