Note for the carrier pigeon

Are you there watching from that other side
If you are I hope you saw
Mauka the girl dog shake sand off her treat before eating it
emerging flowers on your purple and golden orchid
box of books for the women’s shelter
all titles of hope and compassion

I hope you read all this like your own handwriting
in emerald green ink like no other’s
I hope you know it means there is intentionality
there is peace and intelligence aflow
in the world as you left it

I hope you know
you are with me often and always
in this rearrangement of familiar smiles in this garden
of hope and dreams
