She Who Prays.....Always

Black wool poolid in moonlight
her skirt lay softly on the ground.
Resting her arms on an alter of stone
she fingered a circle of beads
and quietly prayed.  

Dark eyes glowed with curiosity
as small figures seperated from bending trees
to drop stones on the fabric lake.

Unmoving she prayed on.
As the sun's rays brushed the tallest leaves
forming shadows of the stones
her prayers were heard.
And were answered.

Susan Cambell, 1988.
