Hail Mary Pass

The first snow of

the season lay two

floors below, and as

he glanced out into

the night sky he caught

sight of a star twinkling

off in the distance.

He momentarily closed

his eyes and like a desperate

quarterback threw a Hail Mary

pass out into the night, hoping

for its completion — a plea —

from his lips to God’s ears.

Great title for this Dawn, and a poetic scene painted very effectively. Whether in desperation or in need or in thankfulness connecting with the Most High is mandatory for survival.
Blessings …
