Love on a string

Love looped and turned,

weaved expertly to warmth.

Around and again,

forward and back.

prayers on the lips,

whispers on the heart.

Love comes together

wrapping us tight

holding us warm

as

arms and hands.

Stitches remain

constant and true

testifying  love

that warms the body, heart and Soul.

Strings of love woven together, wrapping us in prayers,

joy and lightness of hope,

songs of blessing, hearing it,

melody

on the heart.

Softness of cotton, caresses tenderly,

brings ease

warm against skin, chasing chill into night

bringing joy full of softness,

stitches looping

love

shining

light.
