the palm of your hand.

A cleansing ritual uses an eagle's feather as he's messenger between Man and the Creator.
The feather brushes
over the top of my head,
my shoulders,
my back and chest.
I flick it to throw off the sinful.

The feather brushes
over my waist,
my lower back,
down one leg
then the other
I flick it to throw off the nefarious.

The feather brushes
across my left foot
across my right foot
then the soles of both
I flick it to throw off the malicious.

I am cleansed
I am purified
I stand before the Creator
ready to listen
not to ask
I would not presume on our friendship.
