The Wandering Poet

The Razor Edge of Prayer

I’d tell you how to pray, but life’s a prayer,
you choose the words you whisper to the dark,
and act as though a god is certain, there
to listen on–and not some faithless lark.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
