Kit Kelen #407 - how did words become a prayer


407
how did words become a prayer?

no, that's the wrong question
the prayer was there before words came

we lived in hope
no, expectation
all night wishing
so saw dawn spoken

any light is revelation
when your fire's gone out

moment to moment – there's your answer
first light was because the hands together held
this half shut flower

a foolish heart would make-believe

heavens heard the muttering
and took us for dumb beasts
