Praying (Mary Oliver)

I saw this on Heather Lende's blog today and it was too good not to post.

Praying

It doesn’t have to be the blue iris,
It could be weeds in a vacant lot,
or a few small stones;
Just pay attention,
then patch a few words together
Don’t try to make them elaborate,
This isn’t a contest -
But the doorway into thanks,
And a silence in which another voice may speak.
