Night prayer

I offered life my prayers ,
Ave Marias
strung from sleep
to send me a love
I’d want to keep,

close to me .

The shaft was imprecise,
but it burnt the sky
moved satellites
a coloured ray of
blasting light ,

was all I hungered for .

I asked that he be kind ,
respect my ways
heal darker days
brush frosted fears
that ice that clings to powdered tears,

sharp breath of star-kissed night .

Then I settled back to wait ,
it wasn’t foremost on my mind
my time was filled
dusting cobwebs, filing thoughts ,
renovating long-held hopes ;

until you caught my eye ,
and showed me I’d been blind .
