Prayer

How is this
a drop of water
on the scorched tongue
of an orphaned koala cub?

It’s not
and yet
it’s not
perhaps
as futile
as (once) thought.

    Your “Prayer” was gifted to my teenage son who has been struggling with the thought that no matter how successful his acts might be, cannot be of much relief to the insurmountable sufferings in the world.

    Upon finishing your poem, he gave me a big smile.

    Thank you, Father Greg!
