Nothing is quite as simple and as beautiful as Mary Oliver's words. She captures the moment.
It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but a doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

|So many people are intimated about praying...but need not be. God is not evaluating us on how good our diction is, or grammatically correct our petitions. He looks into our hearts. Excellent poem and of course, perfect Subject.

|Such profound Truth, Eileen. It's the gift that keeps on giving. Prayer by Mary Oliver reaches far and wide by this method of posting. Be well.
