Evening Prayers – a poem by Antoni Ooto

Evening Prayers
 
They, the last of the grey ghost ponies
sleep above the valley, the warm blue of morning,
all their wonder bleeding away.
 
Rich is the moment of belonging. Sleep away…
till the dreams race you home
to the fields where
a yellow flower stands watching the sun.
 
Twisting ever so slightly,
nearly immeasurable,
but reaching none the less.
 
Evening prayers worn out
and the blue night falling, 
ask,
is this all that comes,
 
as if there may be more.
