Inside the Mind of Davy D
Where Words and Worlds Collide in Poetry
June 14, 2017
Childhood Reflections, Humour, Poetry, Prayer, rain
We prayed for rain
And it rained
We prayed for it to stop
And it stopped
Now we need rain
What can we do?
My knees can’t take any more.

Thank you yassy. I am truly humbled by your kind words. It is a reflection of a Catholic childhood.
Ah, Davy, the power of prayer. One man’s prayer is another man’s dread. The consequence of giving us free will.

True Roland. I think it is the free will that causes many prayers to be brought.
The power of prayer is something. Especially needed now for the people harmed in the fire (saw it on the news). Sending best wishes and prayers your way.
Thanks NJ, that is appreciated.
oh my. oh my. that last line. wow. wow. the depth of this. you use so few words but the power of this.
Thank you Rosema. I appreciate your kind words and thoughts.

Beautifully captured – the mystery of prayer, of God – and us.
Thank you Gwen. You sum this up wonderfully.
The power of prayer is unsurpassed.
That is so true Eugenia. Thank you for your thoughts.
I am smiling….this is so true Davy..
Thank you Mich, glad to have provided a smile.
Excellent words. Always remember to be careful what you pray(wish) for because it just might come true.
Thanks Jerry, most of my prayers these days seem to evolve around my soccer team.
Prayer can be very powerful. The thing is the answer is not always yes. Sometimes it’s no. Sometimes it’s later. Sometimes it’s another time. Sometimes it’s, I’ve something better in mind. It’s hard to know but I believe either way, prayer is answered.
A very excellent point Mandibelle 16. I think prayers, in whatever form, always provide the way for a new path or journey.
Thanks Davy. You can call me Mandi, it’s fine 🙂
Thank you Mandi 🙂
Davy my heart goes out to your good country again. Such tragedy. May your prayers help one person, my friend. Mr. S
Thank you Stephen.
Thanks for the good laugh, and may we never tire of prayer nor lose hope in its power. God bless!🙏
Thank you Gilda. There can be a funny side to prayer sometimes 🙂
You’re welcome & a sense of humor will always get you through.😁🙏
Ha! You always sneak up on me!! This was great! Loved the bit about your knees, but also thought in my head someone saying, Come on man, make up Your mind! Which is it going to be – Rain or no rain? I’ve got other things to do, you know! LOL! So nice!
Prayer and its power can be interpreted in so many ways Charles. This was a reflection of a Catholic childhood where we seemed to spend most days in prayer. Thank you for your kind words and comments.
I’m just getting around to this one, but I it reminds of me the Episcopal private school I attended as a girl. We had to go to chapel once a week and kneel during prayer. I love the humor and the echo effect of shorter repeating lines, Davy. My knees wouldn’t be able to take it either! You should see what I clean the tub with so that I don’t hurt my knees. It’s a long stick with a brush attached to the end. 🙂
Seems we had similar childhoods Laura. I think my bad knees are also the result of enforced school praying lol 🙂
