Flightpaths of Prayer

Loosed from the lips

They go to the heart that will feel

The ears that will see

And feet that will move inspiration to action.

The paths of prayers are always direct

in all their myriad ways:

source to source

call to response

It may not seem that way

to the one praying

When the answer shows up

the wrong way.
