Poetry Month Day 30- Prayer for Poets

Bless those whose art
is painting with phrases
and compose with alliterative notes
that draw others in
and lift eyes to see
a world filled with wonders
of life beyond life

Provide inspiration,
focus and time as remedy
for words that cling to the tip of the tongue
for the metaphor that’s strained
and the one simile too many
for the not so near rhyme and metrical crime
that makes reading aloud intolerable

We give thanks
for the page and the pen, the pixel and keyboard
where the words joyfully tumble
and mingle in beautiful forms
to convey the depths of light and dark
in heart, soul and mind
