Trying to catch God’s attention

9 Jun 2022 | Believers | 0 comments

Prayers like  gravel flung at the sky’s

window, hoping to attract the loved one’s

attention. But without visible plaits to let down

for the believer to climb up,

to what purpose open that far casement?

I would have refrained long since

but that peering once

through my locked fingers

I thought I detected

the movement of a curtain.


R.S. Thomas (1913-2000).
