Great Lakes Prayer Two

I am Listener,
living out my life
through both blessing
and hardship on the lake shore.

It is simple to think
that it is easier
not to hear the voices,
not to understand their meanings.

I will wait
for the understanding
to translate emotion and thought
into riddles that bait the heart.

What was once worth nothing at all
is now of great value.
I have mentioned this
to the Prophet.
