Short Prayers

I pray

sacredness keep me, as I attend upon it,

and confer honour daily to all that it is.

 

*

May I recall the sacredness of past moments

when at present it seems scarce,

for what is sacred is beyond time and place.

 

*

May I call upon sacredness and daily court

its many splendor’d graces.

 

*

I beg beauty overtake me, and quicken within me,

so that I can perceive the goodness of all things.

I bow my head and whisper prayers of love

and thanksgiving, both humbled and made like a god.

 

*

Sacredness is a simple complication

that elevates the ordinary

to become extraordinary.
