Pope John Paul
your hand from the window
drawn back into your prayer room
for even a nano second
let me stand inside there with you
Mary and St. Joseph
a Vatican in heaven?
beautiful as the painted drawing room of Matisse?
i’m realizing things
this traveling to an ocean side apartment
it’s not so i can travel to the extravagant
but so i can discover my own prayer room
and in this tiny bedroom i do
your hand – from heaven
for a nano second….
a lifetime of prayers are said…
