Detours

All my life, I’ve grappled with a weakness of mind.

I’ve waltzed with negativity

I’ve followed clouds of thoughts during meditation.

I’ve called out to Mother God

and then become seduced by a novel, an eclair, a bed.

*

Oh, the rides—so many of them—

I’ve taken on waves of emotion,

the mirrors I’ve avoided,

the reflections of my worst

and ugliest self.

*

And yet,

the sincerest prayers

beseeching

are answered

a signal from Spirit,

a single monarch butterfly

tumbling across the highway
