Anna Kamieńska

I pray in words. I pray in poems. I want to learn to pray through breathing, through dreams and sleeplessness, through love and renunciation.

I pray through snow that falls outside the window.

I pray with the tears that do not end.

— Anna Kamieńska, from “In That Great River: A Notebook,” Poetry (June, 2010)
