a sense of prayer


prayer. a plea, a supplication, a hope
maybe a wish rising like a feather
or maybe the entirety of flight.

maybe the breath and maybe a communion
with the intelligibility of air in the glow
of a day like this.

a day that feels indeed like many pairs of wings
and the amazing sight, the amazing
warmth of a whole sky and whole flocks
of new songs.

prayer. maybe the amazing sense of being
bared to the sun in a pure state of grace
– and the amazing reverse of a sense
of wearing through all seasons
an overcast tone of imprecation
like a cloak of ashes that is clutched
to far more than just a concept
of soul.

maybe the antiphon echoed in the simplicity
of a silent recitation, deaf to fear.

prayer. maybe every day like a smile
on a day like this.

Prayer is our all in all and this expresses that to the depths. It i like faith-the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen AMEN!!!

This extraordinary poem manifests itself within the reader's soul, like yeast making dough to rise, that very pure essence and "sense of prayer". Thank You for such a beautiful garden in which to meditate.

Teu metade de Um,

As always you shower the light of your beauty and grace on us with your work. Well done dear lady.

A profound exultation of soulful contemplation. A SENSE OF PRAYER opens the door to an influential reality beyond the sense of intellectual or political authority. A particularly relevant poem in this day and age.
