Skyline Contemplation

Padre nuestro

Que estás en el cielo

 

 

Smog fills the air

And along the skyline

Is the leaden breeze

 

 

Santficado sea tu Nombre

 

Although gasoline fills windpipes

And disposition may remain

A bit drowsy

 

 

Padre nuestro, venga tu reino

Hágase tu voluntad

en la tierra

como en el cielo

 

 

There’s only the flash of red,

Breaking, churning of

Wheels on pavement

Swerving on turns

 

 

Danos hoy, nuestro pan

de cada día

perdona nuestras ofensas

como también nosotros perdonamos, senior

a los que nos ofenden.

 

 

Praying for everything to stay

In its lane

In its place

 

 

No nos dejes caer en tentación

y líbranos del mal.

 

 

Despite difficulties

Life’s mal cosas

I’m glad for these tidbits of relief

Holding out on that long drive

For revelation to strike.

 

 

Todo honor y toda gloria por los siglos de los siglos. Amen.

1/14/16

(Disclaimer: I don’t speak Spanish, but I think the Lord’s Prayer in Spanish is beautiful. Also, this is a revised version of Padre Nuestro.)
