learning to pray

learning to pray

from those younger

 

I learned how to pray

Unpretentiously

Unabashedly

Uncomplicatedly

from you, my child

holding a prayer book that nani gave you when you decided to be a voyager

feeling the prayer beads, specially the two broken beads

making your own grace memento’s on rushed days

pausing to offer thanks for careless moments of  friendship

letting tears flow full force into streaming rivers

finding packets of hidden blessings under pillows

bringing in the intimate courage recalled from family chants

gathering strength into bundles on your lap

 

learning to pray

from those younger

bead by bead by bead

may you never be short of rosaries and prayer books, my child
