Jonah

A Poet’s Prayer


If blue is a color
My eyes can get lost in,
If salt is the water
Which flows through men’s hearts,

If time is the tempest
This planet is tossed in,
Lord, let me be Jonah,
If we must choose parts.

This has the pithy of Patrick Woodroffe. I enjoy it for... its proximity to scripture + mystery + Nineveh.
