Prayers from the Back Yard

1. Invitation

“Prayers from the Back Yard – 1. Invitation”

A butterfly, black on orange.
Monarch of her realm,
yet servant of her Lord,
Greets me at day’s beginning.

Winged messenger
(an angel, perhaps)
Lifting my heart to

Hallelujah.

2. Benediction

Wind chimes singing in a cool breeze
Setting sun tints the copper chimes 
a burnished red.

“Peace, peace,”
the evening whispers.

“Peace, peace,”
my heart replies.
