My Prayer (by Cornish Poet Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry

Dear Lord,

Don’t let me ask only for myself,
For problems solved and better health,
Nor ask only for kin and friends,
With minor ills and moral trends,
But make me think in global terms,
Where drought kills and injustice burns,
Please tend to their greater needs first,
Help heal their wounds and quench their thirst,
My patient faith can wait till then,

My prayer sent -

Goodnight -


This 'phoem' is entitled "My Prayer” (by Cornish Poet Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry,
from the 'Phoetry Book', View Points and Points of View".

I describe Phoetry as a fusion of poetry and photography.
I came up with the Phoetry concept in 1994.
Phoetry can also be described as Visual Poetry and loosely described as Concrete Poetry.

The poetry is by Cornish Poet Clive Blake
photography by Chris Robbins MPAGB, AFIAP.
