The Sparrow’s Prayer, A Poem

Today I walked in the rain,

She said,

As the earth came crumbling down

Then later danced on a

Spider’s web

Balancing high above the ground


A sparrow caught in the

Silky threads

Hollow bones melodious, poised and pure

And to the leaves its feathers

Slowly bled

In cadence foreshadowing

The obscure


She caught a plume as it spiraled

In flight

Dissonance rippling through the air

And in that moment altered

The plight

Giving new rhythm to the

Sparrow’s prayer.
