author's note:

I am groping for the keys
of the heavenly harmonies.
           -- Whittier


Though I don't pray...

sometimes, I do
join right palm to left

as I lower my knees
onto solid ground

because this pause
and position
quiets thought somehow:
somehow helps me
rediscover a feeling
that needs no religion

to rediscover
that one and one
actually equal one

to rediscover
the silent wisdom
of whatever god
exists within

to realize again
a sense of humility
so easy to forget.
