In Secret

November 16, 2013

by Stephen Damon

But you, when you pray, go into your inner room,                                                                                                                         close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret…

—Matthew 6:6

Outside my open window

Diesel engine garbage trucks

Make their morning rounds


Through quiet city streets

Still asleep beneath

A sky of twilight gray.


But I am awake, sitting

Beside an empty altar

In a candlelit corner


Of my hidden life

Praying without words

In secrecy of shadows.
