The Hodge Podge Journal – Page 10 – February 1995 – “Mourning Prayer”

Excerpt:

I mourn. I reach for my prayer shawl but it is torn. I mourn.

Another palace. Another square. Lit by the bodies burning there. Mourning mother. Stark stare.

I mourn. I reach for my prayer shawl but it is torn. I mourn.

Your words bruised my soul. Opened the wound. Widened the hole. Busted dreams. I can’t let go.

I rain. Tears flow from the river of my pain. I rain.

February, May 1995

This is part of the Hodge Podge Journal series, excerpts from my art words journal circa 1995.
