Daily by Naomi Shihab Nye
"The days are nouns: touch them
The hands are churches that worship the world" (Naomi 21-22).
10 lines of poems
This envelope i address
so the name balances like a cloud
in the center of the sky
This page i type and retype
This table i dust till the scarred wood shrines
This bundle of clothes i wash and hang and wash again like flags we share, a country so close
no one needs to name it
The days are nouns: touch them
The hands are churches that worship the world
