Forgotten Prayer

Rating: 4.6
Walking in the starry darkness.
I seek a quiet place of peace.
Breath blows white against the air.
Mind searches a forgotten prayer.
I still my breath to quiet my mind.
In the solitude I find.
Even silence has a sound
and as it hums around my feet.
I spin with arms aloft.
To quiet ghosts I shout aloud.
Amen Amen my prayer is found
Draw near and hear my joyous sound
Noreen Carden

A nice poem with a nice title. 'I still my breath to quiet my mind. In the solitude I find. Even silence has a sound' - It is a beautiful expression of a feeling that I can relate to. Very much liked Daniel Brick's comment.

This is a remarkable poem. It is a searching poem, goes deep within to seek the truth but at the same time is open to what might be called the visitation of angels who bring a timely message of hope. There's both the toughness of a human being who takes the initiative to find the truth, but who is also humble before the presence of higher forces. When I taught OEDIPUS THE KING, I told students Oedipus's search for the truth is admirable UNTIL his pride takes over and he does not listen to the higher powers present. That theme struck with special force as I read your poem and realized your speaker wisely chooses humility over pride. It's a lesson that needs to be learned immediately.

Another beautiful little poem Noreen. I'm not a religious man myself but can appreciate, and possibly envy, your religious beliefs.
