Naked Poetry – Naked Prayer

Naked Prayer

Naked Prayer

Kneeling with head bent in prayer
Opening up, consciously, willingly
Inviting close inspection of the soul
Hidden deep beneath the ego
Hidden deep beneath words
Hidden deep beneath intention

Sun’s rays fall upon
The bared body of a woman
Broken by fear and anger
Warming, showing a path
Through the dark shadows
Hiding the soul
Denying the soul

Penetrated by light
A sliver of hope wells
A hope that has no words
That lifts the bent head
Lifting the veil of shame
Pulling the soul up
From banished depths

With mind stilled
With mouth quiet
An emptiness emerges
That is filled with joy
