These are some snippets from my September prayer painting…

… still on the wall, in progress.
I felt certain yesterday 
that a few hours today 
would bring us to that place of ‘filled up’, complete
~ sweet sigh of devotion. ~

But as my practice and life would have it sometimes
I am pulled to spend several sessions,
spaced apart. 

I have actually come to find this frequency
suits my spiritual practice and needs.

I get to lose time with the process, 
in prayer,
in color,
and then step away, into my life.
Then I get to go back again,
committed to see it through,
to this practice I love,
this love I crave,
to the fountain of ritual re-focusing,
re-opening myself to the intention…

to pray
and listen.

No matter the prayer,
always to listen.

And today as I offered my prayer, I heard the painting…
… still calling me to sit with her just a little longer,
another day,
into the cool kiss of October.
