GUEST POST: Poetry Corner: Johanna Ely "Prayer"

To whom it may concern:
I have sent you a message 
on this cold, forsaken night,
an invocation written
on the tails of shooting stars
to wrap your flame 
around this dark hull of earth
and ignite the dormant seed within.
Let the heat of love
burn away all winter’s horrors-
turn dead leaves into flowers,
and darkness into light.

Johanna Ely is Benicia's current poet laureate
