A Prayer

Father,

Send me light—

Send me white reflections of the sun

Off pristine temple spires

Bedecked with blossoms

Brilliant red in sun

Light.

Send me

Piercing love so sharp

It takes my breath.

Send me

Pure intelligence that sears the dark

Of earth-worn wisdom

And heals the wounds of doubt

And loneliness

And deep fatigue.

“I thirst,” he said.

And so do I.

Father,

Send me

Light.
