Prayer Is Like Watching For The Kingfisher (Ann Lewin)

By September 6, 2017Poetry

Prayer is like watching for

The Kingfisher. All you can do is

Be there where he is like to appear, and


Often nothing much happens;

There is space, silence, and


No visible signs, only the

Knowledge that he’s been there

And may come again.

Seeing or not seeing cease to matter,

You have been prepared.

But when you’ve almost stopped

Expecting it, a flash of brightness

Gives encouragement.
