A Call of Words poem
Using words from Mary Oliver’s
The Real Prayers Are Not The Words But The Attention That Comes First

Miriam

In the sideways moments
  when life seems tilted
     and conscience tussled,
        fists clenching the wheel

She appears-
    silvery wings
         against the backdrop of sky
             a hawk on a wire

A calming reassurance
