PRAYER


My God, the Euro
collapses,

icebergs sleepwalk between
banks of the Thames and,

in CBD bedsits in Balham,
Brooklyn and Balochistan,

mantras of a happy death
are injected, recited,
downloaded.

We set our fragile candles
here, there, adrift on the night

alight in naked windows,
landing lights of home:

my darling, touchdown safely.

The Euro stinks
While Wall Street winks
Glaciers bleed their last
Got my happy pill today
To help forget my past

A timely prayer, Kate. I like the part about the candles. For me that part is about hopes and wishes. Well done:)

Kate, your petition of one is consumed with a soul's compassion and I do so respect the commitment. This is prayer, not a poem. And that is of course meant as a very high compliment my dear friend. "we set our candles here, there, adrift on the night" is a passage ever symbolic. Share more of your impassioned prayers with us as you like. May your prayer be answered. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

exceptionally well written, Kate ... smart as well as subtle ... the world is in default and needs prayer beads that stretch out past the heavens ...

Candle in the Wind song comes to my mind after reading this beautiful prayer..I have always felt so safe and peaceful when I have a candle burning. Back in the days a candle was left in the window as a token of safe harbor for a loved one's safe return, Leave the light burning, know that I am here awaiting your safe arrival..I have written a few poems as have many about that light that shines light a lighthouse for your loved one..

As always you make everyone think, and feel through your poetry.
I loved the softness and serenity felt while reading this one.

Much peace, love and candle light,
Amber

Kate, though this appears to be outside the usual Burnside,
I hope you don't mind if I echo Mr. Flanagan: indivudal, unique.

Very touching words, tenderly released into the atmosphere, like soft feathers of thought and feeling floating to meet the soil. Beautiful.

Indeed, life is certainly fragile. The domino effect will soon affect much of europe.
Last-line is rather cryptic and feels out of sync with the poem, to my Pooh brain.
