Skillfully crafted lettering in black and white surrounded
     by very violet polka dots and waves of grass green
     random squiggles shaded in carefully coral
     crimson red chevron and fancy squares of peacock blue
     stripes of totally teal alternated with bubbly blue
     lovely scallops in canary yellow.

Space with beautiful words


Pray Without Ceasing
it reads.

The inscription patiently bows


between artistic expression and everyday mundane


for a moment while pleas
for help and prayers of thanks lift
up hands toward heaven.

Neither expression nor mundane
ever finished.

Pleas nor prayers
ever cease.

Days are made of blank spaces
full of color.
