Prayer Sparks

Despair sparks desperation
sends me to my knees
I want to cry
I don’t know why
Sobbing turns to prayer
deep in my soul

Mercy sparks forgiveness
sends me to my knees
I find healing
for this desperate feeling
Life that makes me whole

This is my writing for Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub. The word for today is spark.

  7. Mercy, yes. Seems often as not the ones we need to forgive are ourselves.

  9. For me this brought to mind Rembrandt’s painting of the Prodigal Son. I often visualize the close-up of the father’s hands on the son when I get too focused on my weaknesses. If you don’t know it, you may want to find it in Google Images. So wonderful.
