Hydrangea Prayer

A Paradelle by Tansy Dots

Charred, crumbling logs
Charred, crumbling logs
Tiny feet slipping in sand
Tiny feet slipping in sand
Charred feet crumbling in sand,
tiny slipping logs.

Dried remains of hydrangea blooms
Dried remains of hydrangea blooms
Clattering cups and murmuring voices
Clattering cups and murmuring voices
Dried voices & clattering remains,
cups of hydrangea blooms murmuring.

Weathered, painted table-top
Weathered, painted table-top
Signs for prayer gardens
Signs for prayer gardens
Weathered signs for painted prayer,
table-top gardens.

In tiny painted gardens
Logs of crumbling hydrangea blooms
Cup charred table-top voices.
Weathered sand-feet murmuring
For slipping signs and
Dried, clattering prayer remains.
