Tuesday Prayer

I part the out thrusting branches
and come in beneath
the blessed and the blessing trees.
Though I am silent
there is singing around me.
Though I am dark
there is vision around me.
Though I am heavy
there is flight around me.
-Wendell Berry

Today, I am grateful for the vision and flight and song of the blessed and blessing trees.
Amen.
