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 taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  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.γ€€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 πŸ™‚
