Diversity of Prayer

Pow Wow. Thanks dollarphotoclub.
Pow Wow.
Thanks dollarphotoclub.

Constant pounding of the drums

Jingling of the rattles like a snake

The bead and leather under the sun

On Pow Wow Feast days a lot at stake


You dare say this is not true Prayer

Look again as the feet stomp our Mother

Catch the light reflected in what dancers wear

Living, breathing meditation like no other


Everyone and every thing is alive with vocation

Spirits calling and dancing igniting the very air

Intercourse of the physical and sanctification

All are occupied with praise of Him with care.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. This is such an interesting post with inclusion of all peoples. I have always been intrigued by Native Americans and their faith, love of nature and some of their abilities to adapt to our culture. We were lucky they came along, helping to teach the Pilgrims to fish, grow corn and other shared experiences. We definitely ‘owe’ them a lot! Smiles for this post about diversity of prayer!
