Polytheist Devotional Art Challenge Day 1: Prayer

I inhale and cleanse

Drawing up breath from lungs

Blessed to breathe, to live

By You

Gods, Ancestors, spirits

I put hands to the keyboard, asking for inspiration

A spark

A fire is lit

My fingers tap

Bidden by You

Sometimes it comes easy

Words falling like rain

From the storm in my mind

Sometimes it is a trickle

Quiet, calm

Each is a gift

Words, breath, struggle

Putting words to power

Wrapping layers of meaning

For the present

Prayer is

Conversation, offering, communing

Sometimes it is hard

Always worth it to speak them

To You
