My Prayer Today: a poem


My prayer today is for the
the grounded wing,
sparrows pecking around
the most tender green of spring;
for the Peepers singing full-throated
hollering out “LIFE” from
the seasonal pond;
for the cedar logs stacked to frame
raised-bed gardens
and the straw bundled
to nestle vegetables yet to be seeded.
Oh, to dare to be low and simple

Oh, to dare such joy.
