April 6: don’t pray, commune

don’t pray, commune

when you are
down
upon your knees
beseeching or
sitting still as a
lump
in the sanctuary
stop.

don’t pray.

enter into community
with the ground of all
being
in that liminal spot
where you experience
ancient words
of hidden power
drawing on the
cloud
of witnesses.

commune.

For National Poetry Month and the Writing Prompt of Poetic Asides (don't "_____", "_____") and NaPoWriMo
