Prayer Upon Completing Creative Work

woman journaling

O holy Mother Muse

If I were standing with you

I would leave the spigot onto wonder open
Offer up my separation.

I would wear a big Bucharan hat on my head

Signifying humility and respect
I would wrap myself in fringes
I would clutch the fringes to my heart-line.

I would ask is there G*d among us?

Until I believed there was G*d within
Or among or around until we felt G*d
Everywhere.

Then I would speak to those

Sitting next to me right side left side

The names of my teachers inspirations influences
Who gave without resistance.

I would invoke their names
Until I felt myself a fountain overflowing –
The fountain I received from them
Would never go dry.

I might become
Such a fountain myself
Some day
Amen.
