our prayers

our prayers by blissbait art

whoever we are, wherever we are, whatever our life may hold:

they are in our every breath, our shoes, wrapped tight in our pillows

draped all about our dinner plates, in the whispers of the trees

and the wonderfully incessant hum of the crickets

in the mad frenzy of a firefly “I’m brightest!” competition

a traffic jam and the graceful rising of the moon

they run wildly out of our faucets dancing through the flow like children aching to play

and are woven into every moment we sit silent

no matter what we’re hearing they wrap themselves around every word

we cry, we laugh, we ignore, we ponder, we pray, we ache, we forget, we help, we play, we worry, we allow ourselves to stop and just Be….

they are the ground that supports us while our story unfolds

our every single moment, action, experience

are permeated with and wrapped a million-fold in most loving prayers from

our beautiful world-family

and ever-present Absolute

    Whoever knows he is deep tries to be clear, but whoever wants to seem deep to the crowd tries to be obscure. For the crowd supposes that anything it cannot see to the bottom must be deep: it is so timid and goes so unwillingly into the water. Such beautiful words. Bravo!

    This is beautiful and that line – “they are the ground that supports us while our story unfolds” – is so powerful, very nicely written.
    I hope you’re having a safe, relaxing Easter weekend 🐰🐣

    Such beautiful thoughts Katy, and the image you’ve crafted is perfect. An invisible mist of prayer running through all things everywhere, underlying every moment…and you’ve made them so that we can see the very prayers being offered. You have a beautiful spirit 💝
