Prayer

Bead after bead, link on link, raising the words
Linking us to the Creator above, the beads are
Created by others shiny, intentional links of a
Life in the hand, whispered words, full of our
Own intention, rising like incense to regions
Unknown yet drawing us closer, always into
Relationship with the One who cratered us
Words so familiar, words unfamiliar, words
Etched in our hearts since the beginning always
Waiting to be awakened by our acknowledgement
Of the connection, a life line of the heart
