    UpThere

    So many things are up there:

    air,

    electrons in gyration,

    wavelength sensations,

    pulsings planned

    and those offhand

    that make the patterns up there

    snares.

    Yet there’s a way up there

    for prayer

    to push aside

    some atoms,

    to loosen tangles

    in the stratums,

    to smooth a clearance

    and soften interference,

    so that there will trace down

    for me

    from up there—

    rhythms of infinity,

    waftings from Divinity.
