Friday Prayer – A Poem, “The Rock”


Today, I offer up this poem I wrote as a prayer from the heart….

The Rock

I climbed the high rock

where rising waters

licked my feet

and the whip of the wind pulled

taut skin toward

hell and heaven.


My needy,

wide and wild-eyed soul

clung to the crag

and cried out,



And the Voice answered

Climb down

and I’ll help you swim.
