I slide carefully crafted prayers

under heaven’s door –

reasonable requests plainly scrawled  

on flat, white sheets of paper.

These, God takes and turns, 

fold by fold,

into something new,

sending them back in the strangest of guises –

a flitting bird, a bouncing frog –

fullness of life

where I only thought

to ask for provision.
