Prosperity

today,
my daughter and i created
an altar dedicated to
bringing several parties
to the table
and creating
situations
in which each
person at the table
walks away
smiling,
satisfied.

i usually create my altars
intuitively,
but today we melded in a splash
of intention,
using a money-draw candle,
a happy buddha
and a ganesha,
sharing a
sparkly gold platform.
nestled in a gold-rimmed bowl
there’s a
beautiful camellia bloom
from my daughter’s backyard,
coins,
a new wallet,
and copper,
at the suggestion
of a friend.

we added a
toy frog –
the frog part
for transformation,
the toy part
for childlike
curiosity
and
confidence.

it all sits atop
a piece of fabric
we found this morning,
fabric dedicated
to playing
and most importantly
for today’s purposes,
winning at bingo.

we’re feeling good
about this altar,
but we don’t
mind at all
if you want to
cross your fingers
for us.
