Seeking your Blessings

Oh Beloved Muse

Fickle as Fortune

Diaphanous as Luck

Neglected so

Unshun your humble servant.

My thoughts are not mine…

My words

Usurped

by my heart’s turmoil.

This is my undying promise to you:

Tirelessly I will toil my way

Through to you….

seek your ephemeral blessings

pay earnest obeisances

At your temple threshold

I’ll engrave your haloed name

In every verse…

tested

i sought prayer

and found relief

from the testing

that i unbeknownst

was asking for

the more i prayed

away my tears

the more i uttered heartfully

the more i found reason

to utter still more beseechingly

for the mercy that had not reached its time to be received
