BEADS WELL WORN

Beads well worn

with a thousand caresses

from hands scarred and aging.

Weathered from many seasons,

roughened from scorching days

of toil and labor—

clasped together in so many prayers

of hope through the long nights.

The rattle of beads mingles

with whispered litanies—

quiet mournful hymns

heard by no one

but the angels.
