a simple lullaby…

simple lullaby

close your eyes
my sweet little child
close your eyes
and
dream of dragons
with wings
soft as elephant ear pastries
sprinkled
with pistachio and sugar
whose fiery breath turns
to a golden nut brittle
yes dream
my little one
for tomorrow
we cross the desert
far from home
for war
is at our door
we’ve said our prayers
for the dead
and made offerings
for their souls
so now we leave
seeking to believe
that god
will find a way
to bless this next day
close your eyes
my sweet little child
close your eyes
