so many worship authoritarian gods of the desert reminding us of the spirit that is in fact us wind deiven sands greet me every morning of my life in god's living presence I look up once more and know the name escapes me day and night resting quietly it comes and rests in my heart and breathes me with a song scent  of night-blooming jasmine beckons me to sleep and dream of love the hot sun awakens my thirst
