Prayers for India

My daughter heard about India
on the news today.

Thousands of people drowning
on dry land.

“It’s good that it’s windy,”
she tells me.

I ask her why
and she says it will carry
our air to them
so they can breathe.

I start to explain,
but then I stop.

I ask her if she wants to add
her prayers to the wind.

She nods,
and suddenly
the wind picks up,
a saying I never understood
until now.
