A Prayer

We hear you have found, and accepted,
the warmth, and the joy
we have created within these walls.

You are welcomed, dear friends.

Here's to  life anew.

May you enjoy being wrapped,
and loved,
and nurtured into a new wholeness.

Same as we have found.

This is our gratitude.

Welcome to you.

The earth beneath her feet was
shaken to its core.
It tattered, and it tore.

Rent into a thousand pieces,
all askew.

Never, not ever could she be 
whole again, 
or seamless, 
or free.

 Not now. Not ever.
without thee.

This was another Magpie inspired poem. Check out the great writers at:

Thanks Willow.

Just Down the Street

Just down the street there is a house
with one window
that looks like an eye that never sleeps.

I walk by it everyday
on my way home from school.

I imagine the people
who live there
have one eye too.

But not like a Cyclops.

I imagine them like pirates
with eye patches, and crooked smiles
with yellowed teeth.

I walk on the other side of the street
afraid of who might see
my imagination
hiding behind the tree.

This is for Magpie #52, thanks for another flight of fancy, Willow. Please check out this awesome writer's blog,
