"A Winter Prayer," Arthur Solway

Atlanta, Georgia (2011)

"A Winter Prayer"

Arthur Solway

Along the frail limbs of a tree, outlining rooftops,

a light accumulation changes to heavy rain.

Just as any life can suddenly change

the way people foolishly complain, drifting

toward decline, quiet dissipation.

Do you hear the fainthearted complaints

of snowmen while others simply bitch

about the slush? Send us some healing notes,

the gentle hush of any god willing to listen.

"A Winter Prayer" by Arthur Solway originally appeared online at Word of Mouth, Athens, GA.
