Prayer


Tonight's poem is a "tanka", a poetic form consisting of a haiku (5-7-5) with an additional two lines (7-7).  The haiku portion ends with a noun or a verb, and the final two lines represent some form of turn in perspective.  It's probably my favorite poetic form.

Prayer

These words are what I
have, and tears.  All I can do
is ask You to hear.

You have the power to weave
prayers into time’s tough fabric.
