Life Is a Prayer

I keep a daily journal and. As I wrote yesterday, this kept surfacing. I jotted the ideas down on Sticky Notes and let them percolate for the day. This is what dripped from the coffee pot.

Life is a prayer;

A mystery

It holds answers

And unshakeable questions.

In the oneness;

Alchemy loosens–

It transforms

In that mystery.

Prayer is listening;

It is an ordinary passage of time

It is the extraordinary voyage of life

Unpretentious, fully lived quest.


About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. Seems you should put that same coffee in the pot more often. Wonderful words dripped out.

  2. I haven’t seen you for a long time. Thank you for visiting my blog.

  3. Such a solemn and beautiful prayer!

    “This is what dripped from the coffee pot.”

    This reminds me of what the Hungarian Mathematician Paul Erdos famously said: Mathematicians take coffee as input and churn theorems as output. (I hope I understood your sentence correctly.)

  4. Excellent composition.

  5. I loved the description ” dripping from the coffee pot” A beautiful and very poetic post! Thanks 🙂
