Advent prayer for the friendly beasts

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

God I pray for those
who have a relationship,
not quite,
but close to parenting
friendly beasts —

some magnifi-cat,
a dog with compassion
more tender than a rich man
behind a shut gate,

one who may guideFriendly-Beast-cover
and comfort
a person limited in vision,
a solider newly home,

donkeys, and all other
companion animals
who warn us about angels
in our path,
and speak not just
at midnight Christmas Eve,
but on so many
lonely, lonely days.
