Bowen Island Poet

This is a nice poem by Bernice Lever, established writer and Bowen Island resident:

PRAYER
I don’t want to live everyday
as the last day,
grasping and clasping
at disintegrating care
like a fish leaping
from an oil slick
into our polluted air.

Grant me the wisdom
to live each day
as the first day,
shy in its newness
strong in its promise.
