One Shot Wednesday – Week 44

Poetry- time once again! O happy One Shot Wednesday!

Here’s my one shot:

Sweetly Count the Hours

Lord, I’ m offering You a new day.
Already, You know,
This isn’t going to be pretty.
I count on You to do
What You have always done.
Take the morsels
Which Your hand has touched,
As for the rest,
With one mighty
Exhalation of Holy Breath
Spirit the chaff away.
At days’ end,
As with all my yesterdays,
I will lay my head
Upon Your Breast,
And sweetly count
Our hours

  1. you blur the line between poetry and prayer — although i’m one of those people who say they can be one and the same 😉

    so beautiful, Joann….thank you

  2. I love lines two and three. I can almost feel the speaker taking in a sharp breath and bracing for the day ahead!
