Prayer

web

If this poem could be a prayer

I would ask it to save me

from an inattentive life

 

I would ask the poem to help me see

the art work of the spider web

the music of a sigh

the drama of the ant laboring with a seed

the ballet of the bat darting for mosquitoes

 

Since this poem is a prayer

I offer up my gratitude for

the poetry of my existence
