rosary beads

A Poem by Sage Gabrielle

thinking about it, this poem can take on a double meaning. hmph.


I mended my broken rosary beads.
Each and every bead hugged their very own metal link.
I didn’t have to worry about the potential mess I could’ve made.

All it took
was a little push
and pull.
A little levering
and it was a good as new.

Wouldn’t it be nice if that’s all it took?
A little push and pull,
A little lift,
and we would be as good as new.

A big idea kept simple makes the idea stand out all the more. Recovering from a life crisis we may be tempted to force matter too much. When in reality things tend to work themselves out. For our part having a humble and willing attitude is often all we need.

A little push...a little pull...Intended or not, I think you found a bit of truth in the metaphor.

Nice work on this.

My mom has a pair of rosary beads she carries with her everywhere she goes. if she ever lost them or broke them. she'd be breakin more than just the beads.
