For today’s prompt, write a prayer poem. Your prayer poem could be religious, but it doesn’t have to be. People can pray to make it to work on time. Or to be rich. Or even for the rain. It’s completely up to you what you’re poem is about. (I pray that everyone is respectful of each other’s prayer poems today.)
Here’s my attempt:
Let the day begin with children happy
and the birds singing outside my window.
Give me peace, and let my heart be open.
Let my heart be open. Let my mind not
worry over who said what while I slept
through the night. Please help me fight all the words
that would want to pour out. Let my sins fall
from me like leaves, and — like leaves — let the wind
sweep them out the open door of my heart.
