Almost a Prayer


Almost A Prayer


There’s no power or strength beyond love.

Love is not cast in a mold.

Instead, nature, as artist, arranges

each individual’s fancy,

ordered to bring

some charm to the narrative.


Within the decrees of friends,

there stands a high level of

profound admiration, in corrective balance

with a countenance that shines.


And if we believe in the power of such,

the way is clear to express a wide smile,

and to answer earnest requests

for the world-wide opening of dialogues,

sought as almost a prayer.
