Lost in prayer

when I pray the words 
scurry by like ants 
I watch their silent progress 
unregistered on the kitchen scale 
undulating in their trail 
unnoticed until they become 
a swarm 
indistinguishable one from the next 

there is one you see 
that carries five thousand times 
its weight 
enough to feed them all 
for a day
