Sacred Salt

     "Sacred salt sparkles on our bodies." - Denise Levertov

Not the salt found in blood, semen, tears or mucus,
dried from wounds or sickness or deprivation
but the salt that Jesus asks us to be, Be the salt of the earth.
To be sprinkled and spread, lightly, ocean spray settling
on barren and untouched skin, to sparkle on bodies
who cry out to be flavored with delights and to be tasted
while shouting joy to the heavens acclaiming, I am alive!
