Today’s prompt, day 24 of the poem-a-day challenge, is to write about faith. I address a moment of deep faith that we all take for granted. Don’t believe me? I’ll let you be the judge.

Driving on a country lane


Consider the way we take it for granted
driving the streets with nary a care. Oh sure,
we look both ways, and stop at lights, taking it
for granted that everyone else does the same.
We barrel down the road, speeding when we
are in a hurry, using our horn sometimes
or cursing if someone is going too slow.
Trusting implicitly that they stay in their
lane. And that, my friends, is what we call blind faith.
