Prayer #116: Memorial


Prayer #116: Memorial

Beyond the parades bedecked with bright flags
After the barbecues, sticky and sweet
During the beach days of sandcastled walks
Help us remember the reason we gather
And keep us remembering it
With sparkler in hand
The picnic table set
And sun on our face
For such life and living
Is an unfathomable gift.

Amen.
