Sep 6, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer


Thought

At turn of dusky fading day

Last orange reds linger spread

Lamps lit to keep the dark at bay

Food prepared and hungry fed


Inner lamp lights child’s face

Clear beams shine innocence

Truth simply taken as embrace

Playful words take no offense


Purity and beauty both will shine

Like infant’s open wonder gaze

When forgetting “I” and “mine”

We outgrow adult ignorant phase


Prayer

O Lord I am only a child, but I am your child. Forgetting this I become childish instead. Be my playmate and dance a while as I leave off my foolish self-consciousness.
