    I wonder if those prayers are “like the coins thrown by those who wished for something else…” (line from one of my fav. poets- David Whyte)

  3. Gillena Cox says:

    hope some of those prayers were not swept away; have a nice Saturday

    much love…

  4. That can be painful!

  5. {{ oooowww !!
    such a rich one, this !!

    always know
    that Truly Useful Prayers
    will cling
    to the smallest of rough edges …

    thank goodness }}

    Some prayers might find their way to the heavens as the wind picks them up and carries them away. Hope. A wonderfully reflective haiku!

    Oh, I have a few of those. I hope the Sweeper is saving them for the just right moment to answer them! 🙂

    What a bittersweet image, nicely done! Reminds me of the Garth Brooks song about unanswered prayers – sometimes it’s a good thing if we don’t get what we think we want at the time.
