Hands at rest

Strong hands,
scarred from work's toll.
Wounded testimony
to life's toil.

Every mark,
a moment
carved in time.
Etched in faded memories.

Rigid now,
ordained by death's decree
a resting place
for well-worn wooden beads.

No more,
the subtle thread
through fingers
seeking solace
in whispered supplication.

the sacred chant
that soothed your soul
and strengthened your resolve
to clench in vice-like grip
what destiny determined.

At peace now
joined in prayer
and resting,

Eternal rest.
A cradle substituted for a grave.

Think if it is anymore than a prayer, it can be devastating. Loved it**********.

Strong hands - Every mark - Rigid now - No more - Silent - At peace now - Eternal rest.
A poem within a poem...well told...of life. So enjoyed the whole and the subtle, Marty...well said.

Interesting perspective of such a solemn time, all in God's loving hands now....

Be always safe,

A whispered prayer seems to run through the background of this poem. Definitely thoroughly enjoyed. Liz
