Lent 2

on the asphalt shorelines
of a silver-black puddle
I find my prayer:
for stillness amidst the busyness,
for delight in each drop of connectedness,
for awareness of the ripples that I cause
and grace for the ones with which I collide,
for a light heart on this hide-your-head rainy day
and an open eye to see the surprising beauty
of an oil slick rainbow
