Prayer for those without God


It would be good
To have a local place
Without a God that
A person could go

To say aloud or keep inside
Their worries and wishes
That others might say
Amen to that and so on

May your mother heal
And the dream ripen
May your child talk
And the day be fond


To pray and long
To beseech to a that
Which is beyond our head
Is a human rite

Unconnected if so chosen
With the availability
Or otherwise
Of imagined heavens

May your doors open
And the kindness lengthen
May hope not falter
As the night remains undone


Amen to that and so on
