An Attitude Of Prayer
by louis gander
9/24/2016 / Self Help
The sun was hot. There was no breeze.
It seemed that nature died -
except annoying croaking frogs
that tore me up inside.
And then those pesky chirping birds
kept on and wouldn't quit!
The peace and quiet fell away.
I thought I'd have a fit.
Emotions begged for me to scream
but logic's chains were fixed.
It seemed that I was torn in two
as all the truths were mixed.
A duck was splashing water and the
crickets pierced my ears.
I even heard a car horn then
that brought me close to tears.
Enjoy the outdoors? I could not.
The banks were on my heels!
And though I was not guilty, they
had voided my appeals.
My mind was racing to and fro.
I willed to run away -
where I could start a brand new life
where peaceful was the day.
Then wings of sev'ral hummingbirds
had winnowed that still air
which moved me ever closer to
an attitude of prayer.
They seemed to not be bothered by
the things that bothered me.
I once was blinded by this earth...
but now, at last, I'm free!
