I saw you in the prayer garden…

I saw you in the prayer garden
last night
walking the flower path
singing a mantra
I had never heard

had there been moonlight
I would have understood
the light you walked in

as I was falling to my envy of the flowers
that felt your breath
and would awake by morning

you turned to me
radiant
and let me hear your song

beloved,
flowers need only
wait hours for the morning

you must know awakening
as if it were eternally
far away
or else forever lose your way
in longing
