Napowrimo (12/30)-April 12

Today she dusted off the dusty

Book of believers
Which was always
Kept in a corner
Of her house
It has been a long while
since she last visited
the corner
It has been ages since she
Last picked the book or made a prayer
It has been decades since
When she felt a connection
With her God
All this while; she
Had been
An agnostic
but today she needed
To pray because
One of her own
Was in pain
Their lives hanging on
The delicate thread between
life and death
And there was nothing that
She could do
But pray
So today she opened
up the Book of Believers
and tried to remember
the ways
in which
her mother
prayed!
