Quit your Prayers

3D5E2A05-1By Kateri Boucher

Quit your prayers
for quick answers,
quick garden growth,
quick long hair,
quick flight across
the country,
quick salvation,
and even quick death.

Prayers for quick are
what got us here.

Today, pray only for breath,
for in and out,
for a chance to join those
ancient openings and closings that move
at no speed
but their own.
