Prayer

by The Princess   Mar 4, 2011


If I flatten my lips,
in prayer,
against your forehead

or rest
my forehead
against your
heart

would you open to us
one massive claw?
would you cradle
my country
in your palm?

    A short but thought provoking piece. Nor what volumes this speaks. I too hope your prayers will be answered and that you and your family will remain safe.

    This poem is short on words, but heavy in meaning and symbolism.

    I truly enjoyed it and hope your prayers will be answered.
