An Invocation – Jeffrey Beam (b. 1953)

From cedar’s green feathers cedar’s red odor 
From moss’s cool fever earthworm’s glowing 
From pitch-pine’s field-taking pitch-pine’s black tarring 
From the heel-worn path eye-light roaming 
From cornfield’s stalking bobwhite ascending 
From the cardinal’s scarlet a royalty before us  
From persimmon & apple urgent oriole feeding 
From blue-eyed grass in shadow late summer’s Eden 
From footstep to cow path mud pool & duck quack 
From goldenrod’s augur winter gathers 
From ice cracking oak limb frisson & weeping 
From beech leaf in winter gold filigree forming 
From rosehip & goldfinch thorn & bright needle 
From storm clouds gathering light darting through us 
From April’s spring torrents creek’s roaring persistence 
From pond over-flowing swamp’s restraint ending 
From the word unblemished robust declension 
From honesty in bloom articulate blue 
From granite to flagstone columbine freshes 
From cat-paw & wind-blow soft goes the morning 
From Star of Parnassus tourmaline greening 
From bluestem the meadow 
From poplar the tulip 
From each handshake taken a prayer advocated 
From beehive golden coagulate bomb 
From bottomland quiet no petulant view 
From squash bloom a shine 
From dog sleep a rumble 
From peril no thunder only dwellings to calm 
From muscadine’s favor copper infusion 
From mountain in snow light a rabbit’s furred thicket  
From everything under a thistle be thine 
From garnet & hawkweed the owl & the red-tail 
From trout ever jumping the roe of attention 
From pecan & walnut bread everlasting 
From collard & field green canny pot liquor 
From bluet & aster concealment never 
From wild carrot the umbel of consciousness feeding 
From myself & from strangers the friend ever trenchant 
From mystery’s bedroom love’s tortuous wisdom 
From the formless the formed 
From the void all-in-all 
From the patient rose blooming the perilous night 
From dove coo at morning to midday’s recountal 
From magnolia camellia gardenia thrall 
From dancing thunder a ridgepole at last 
From solitude vibrant fortitude’s castle 
From abundant forgiveness compassion’s great tact
From whatever you do or not do find a meadow 
From the river crossing an island encountered 
From the spirit descending a wine glass uplifted 
From evening’s quickening harmonious rest 
From the secret unfolding the obvious moment 
From whirring cicada velvet occasion 
From apple forbidden knowledge abounding 
From the snake on the path origin & ending 
From sunlight through trumpet vine flame in the belly 
From tears’ shivering sorrow joy reshaping 
From veronica & chickweed earth warmly responding 
From mountain’s re-greening eye filled with blue
