	PRAYER

	By Michael Stone


	How does an unbeliever pray?
	Yet I do.

	Some know God
	in halogen-bright blinding white light
	with black, black shadows.
	But I see grey.

	'Glory to God for dappled things',
	for unclarities ambiguities complexities all,
	for greys.

	He will be one with His name:
	God's wholeness then.

	But ours?
