Rosary of Belief

The rosary curtained the little locket,
the powerful image of the monkey god-
Lord Hanuman.
As every holy bead rolled over 
by the devout finger
of a spiritual mind
gathering symbolic vibrations
of love, devotion and grace.
The mace, 
the mountain,
the leaping image over lake and fountain
only strengthened 
faith wound around
beautiful beads of belief.
I hold the rosary 
in my trusting twines 
of twirling thought
only to discover the Lord!

"I hold the rosary in my trusting twines of twirling thought only to discover the Lord!" Striking words. Wonderful thoughts. Very well written.

I love the way this flows. It's so smooth. Lovely.
But which Lord? Shiva? Vishnu? Jesus? Mahommed?

Thanks Little Hat. But didn't you read the poem fully. I have mentioned Lord Hanuman in the very beginning of the verse.

Thanks Willow. Yes, the rosary can make us feel the devotion for any form of God as long as the devotion is there...

"faith wound around beautiful beads of belief" very poetic, Shail. The poem is great. on this day of Hanumath Jeyanthi you have paid real tributes to the very symbol of love.
somebody told me that Ramar still owes to Hanuman. and that Rama's debt will never be repaid, unless and until Hanuman marries somebody and that somebody is carried away by somebody else and Ramar helps him to rescue his wife. As Hanuman is by definition a bachelor the Lord is forever indebted to him.

So nice of you to comment Sridhar. Was looking forward to it.

Yes, not just Lord Rama, the whole of humanity is indebted to Lord Hanuman for eternity.
We don't seem to be learning from good human beings. I think it is high time we start learning from the gods about devotion and love for humanity.....
