a baptist’s thoughts on mudras

the tips of the middle fingers
meet the thumbs
in the mudra for patience

and the mudra for prayer
is simply palm meeting palm flat
for centering

as when I pray for patience

I hold my palms open
on my legs–
turned upwards in that gesture
of helplessness

as if I expect patience
will fill my hands
when I ask for it

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
