Poem after an epistle on prayer….rough draft

Poem after an epistle on prayer….

Let your prayer
Be the fruit of your Holy ardency
Offer it up ungrudgingly
Ripe with unconditional love

Let the tree of your prayer be rooted
In Holy fear
That you may be diligent
And constantly aware of your mortality

To realize time is short
Will enhance your plea
Refining it so that your presses
Be abundantly overflowing with sincerity

At the outset of your supplications
The fruit will be green
Bitter from the attachments
Of your desires

Let your hope rest in eternity
Engendering it to everlasting life
Make your hope the upright trunk
Rooted in dread and humility

When the fruit is ripe and free from any desire
It will become food for the King
Feed the tree with faith
And protect the fruit from the birds of the field
With works clothed in prudence
