Verifying

In the whir of an electric fan in the room
There is sound that comes from a child
A child of the earth and a climbed wall,
A tree with leaves plucked into pockets
For worship of a stone god in vermilion
And yellow softness of a beginning god.
It is god nested in a heap of yellow rice.
It is my women of rustling silks of the air,
A fragrance of worship flowers and flame.
It is the flame that dies in floral fragrance
But re-lives to verify my continued living.
