Prayer Jar

Prayer Jar

A piece of pulped wood
smudged charcoal
fervent fingers
a primal prayer imprinted
burnt in a flash of flames
ashes ashes
they float like dust moats
momentarily suspended
till a gust of wind
send them scattering
far and wide
far and wide

the air swirls with prayers
an open jar
never full

 Does anybody hear them?
…Does anybody hear
