CIRCLES/ Poetry Potluck #20

                                                          Henri Matisse

FOR THIS WEEK'S Poetry Potluck #20, we are given the theme of Peace, Relaxation, and Spirituality.  I think spirituality chose me!


Standing within
a circle of prayer,
my spirit rises
in an ecstatic haze.

Float through holy words,
feel a splash
of sacred water
sizzle on my fiery brow.

Revive me
from my slumber.
At my feet,
a grey scaly fish,
with glazed eyes,
waits to be reborn.

There is a sense of the sacred, other-worldly in this. Enchanting.
