Prayers For This World

Like towels hung out

to dry in the wind

line upon line

of cloths 


clean cloths

pegged out 

prayer flags

sending thoughts

sending blessings

no longer moist and living

but wind dried leftovers 

from days gone by

when laundry was line-dried

and peace and goodwill were sent

as thoughts and prayers 

on the wind

not in the ether.

But in the end

it made no difference 

in the end 

it makes no difference 


they’re hung out to dry.
