Chiseled Lips


Madonna stands
in her stone garden silent,
marble hands in prayer,
my sins the beads of her rosary.
Forgiveness resting on a petition
coming from chiseled lips
that have no voice.

'....stands in the stone...'
Yet looks true...like speaking through the silence! And rosary reflecting something real face of tough life..!

Love the prose!!
So inspiring!!!

I particpated in a challenge that had to do with Sacred Music. I have listed it below.
Your poem resonates a great message in the connection with the rosary beads as a symbol of more.
Well done ... I enjoyed this.
