An Evening Prayer

Now, I arrive at day’s end
and again I bow with thanks:
for beloved ones to break bread with,
for curiousities aglow,
for feet that trod after mind’s bent,
and for earthy grace that conducts
my performance, play, life.

    Ah, I love the simplicity of this and the sigh it evokes. My favorite word (is that allowed?) is “again”; I’m reminded that these good things you list return to us and can be repeatedly appreciated.

      I love how you picked up on that again. And yes, a favourite word IS allowed. Earthy would be mine, and bent. You are even allowed to have two favourites on my blog!

    This is so lovely. It reminds me of one of my favorite paintings — Millet’s “The Angelus,” which is marked with the same simplicity and grace.

    You’ve reminded me of something I learned rather later than I should: saying grace is one thing, experiencing grace is another.

      Thanks for reminding me again of the art of Millet. It is exceptional in so many ways. Yes, this bit on grace is profound, and perhaps a lesson taught us over all of our life.

    Thankfulness is a beautiful thing. We all need to pause and give thanks. Very lovely prayer, Allen
