A doorway into thanks…

Praying by Mary Oliver

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few

small stones; just

pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try

to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which

another voice may speak.
