The Skier’s Prayer
Our Father who art in a fluffy white heaven,
Please drop 2-3 inches of new powder tonight,
But AFTER I get home so I don’t have to drive in it.
Give us this day
A bright blue sky
With a big warm sun,
But not so warm it melts the powder.
Forgive me for trespassing
Onto the work day
To get out skiing while the skiing is good.
Lead me not into the temptation to read online
But deliver me to the lakeshore
For at least an hour, or more
