For the Joy and Privilege of Being a Writer

Lord, Logos,
thank you for the joy and privilege
of being a writer.

Thank you,
a million times, thank you
that I get to spend my days
amid words
and sentences
and paragraphs
that (mostly) cooperate
and do my bidding.

Thank you for the honor
of seeing my words in print,
where others will read them
and perhaps be helped by them.

Thank you that my brain
and fingers
still work
(despite years of wear and tear),
and that agents
and publishers
and readers
haven't yet
found me out.
