Healing is a woman or a rainbow


or a dream


(where fear comes to die— where I grow wings and float into the arms of god).


There is healing


in the touch of mother on my skin.


praying fever away with will


and fire and olive.


Healing is the smile of my father,


a miracle—


like the eclipse in '01


that hid me from Gehenna till light swallowed.


There is healing in the quiet before dawn


earth surging back to life, memories gathering themselves back into bodies,


children falling out of dreams— into water


into love.





Healing is the laughter of a stranger


on the bus home (or away from home)


—she said


'laughter can drown the voice of tragedy'


—I said


'show me'


Then she burst into a river of songs. Later that night,


we held hands and drowned in a sea of laughter.





There is healing in the voice of god on a boat


floating in Galilee saying:


peace be still peace be still peace be still breathe! @@
