    Prayer in the wind
     
    Bless all drivers of high-sided vehicles,
    Bless all seagulls blown off course,
    Bless all shoppers whose carrier bags are erratic sails in a bad storm.
    Bless those who really are at sea, in cavernous calamitous waves.

    Bless the blades of the wind turbines,
    Bless the shuddering power lines,
    Bless the deep roots of tall trees.

    Bless the vulnerable heads of baldies,
    Bless the knocked knees of pensioners,
    Bless the knuckles of straining cyclists.

    Bless the high crane operators, the scaffolders, the window-cleaners.
    Bless the course of the hopeful spot-kick and the aircraft.

    Bless the homeless ones,
    Bless the scared ones,
    Bless the roof tiles.
