I will pray

There is so much to be done. I will pray.

Today is the day
The Christmas tree
Comes down.
So much more happens
In the world around me.
I will pray
As I pack away ornaments,
Disassemble the tree.
I will pray
As the birds eat the seed
Spread on the back lawn;
As the Cooper’s hawk
Comes and goes
From the red bud
In front of the house.
I will pray
As the kitten sleeps
Beside me.
I will pray.
Friday is a day
For prayer
In the midst of everything.
My dreams have been filled
With comings and goings,
Amazing dreams,
Sound and fury
Signifying I am not in charge.
I will pray
As the tree comes down,
As the tree is packed away
For next year.

I will pray.
