Nature’s Mantis

Prophets are like that,

you know. They set themselves in

our path and refuse

to budge until we take note.

That praying mantis

lived up to his prophet name,

plastering himself

to our door in silent

proclamation of

the power of prayerful stillness,

challenging us to listen.
