each screaming moment a prayer

Posted to Action Poetry




pray without ceasing
in the tranquil diet of daylight
on the breakfast moon praying
each bite a prayer on the fork
praying & a walk in prayer touching
the bark of a passing branch
it's a prayer, praying
with open eyes & a passing car
in prayer each heartbeat
& heaving breath a prayer
and the footfalls of people
a prayer praying alongside children
& mothers & dogs a prayer
with a walking stick a prayer
praying on the path climbing
each step a prayer each screaming
moment a prayer to end all prayers
