Prayer – a response
January 14, 2019
The very act of assent
Choosing attention to deepest silence,
Recited words−formulae or ritual−
become “what we ourselves can do.”
Attending, The once-spoken Word
rung like a Great bell.
It’s single, ever-present Peal
moves without changing−encompassing everything.
Deafness itself, drowns within.
This! is “what happens to us.”
Note: A response to ‘Noontime: Sext: ~ The Angelus’
