Prayer - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen
a cry in the wilderness
when the water jug is emptied.
It is scream in the dark
when fear seeks to put out
the last ray of light.
It is dance in the morning
when hope is found even
in the darkest hours.
oneness in fellowship
It is hope in despair
It is trembling in the awesomeness
before a holy and loving Presence,
and dwelling under God's wings.
