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.
