Prayers

There are great prayers for blessings in the world

These are the prayers for the welfare of all beings

Prayers for peace

Prayers that all beings may be happy

 

There are those who pray for the small things

for the little blessings

For their family

for their loved ones

for their dog or cat

Prayers for a job

prayers for money

Prayers for a safe journey home

 

Sometimes there is a presence seeming Divine

 

Sometimes it is there in the small prayers

 

Sometimes it is there in the great prayers

 

Sometimes it is there when my woman curls up

 

Into the small place of my shoulder

 

and finds rest
