Poetry Friday

Following the broadcast last Sunday, several people have been kind enough to send me this poem by Ann Lewin.

Prayer is like watching for the Kingfisher.
All you can do is
Be where he is likely to appear and wait.

Often, nothing much happens;
There is space, silence and

No visible sign, only the
Knowledge that he’s been there,
And may come again.

Seeing or not seeing cease to matter,
You have been prepared.

But sometimes, when you’ve almost
Stopped expecting it,
A flash of brightness
Gives encouragement.

Speak Your Mind
