Voices rising

We are led in prayer
encouraged to pray
our own prayers aloud
so the voices rise at first
a quiet cacophony then
become louder merging
into a single, solitary
stream of many streams
and the current carries
the voice upward, outward,
spilling on to the sidewalk
and street, splattering
the man as he walks by.

Prayer splattered ... a great concept.
