Silent Prayer, With Crows
the caw-caw-caw of a crow in the forest
and off in the distance the caw-caw-caw
of another crow in response.
The caws go on and on -
a deep conversation for the crows -
but instead of letting it be a distraction
I choose to let each caw be a Call
to return to the center,
return to the One
who meets me in the silence
and in the caw-caw-caw of the forest.
