Poetry As Prayer

Trapped in an edgy wilderness of discontent,

separated from rescue,

 not by choice,

but by an inexplicable closing

 of the heart,

I write.

I write because

it is something I know to do.

It is something I can do

while waiting for

an inexplicable opening of the heart

which can’t be forced,

but will be welcomed

with gratitude when it comes.

    Thank you, Joan, for this true and beautiful expression of “how it is now.”
