Sacred Thread


 PAD Challenge day 19: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) Thread;” replace the blank with a word or phrase; make the new phrase the title of your poem; and then, write your poem.

Since I seem to be drawn to Alison Krauss's music these days, how about two more more?



Ain’t it fine, love?
Aint it lovely?
Aint it somethin’ to behol’
We don’t need to
Fret or worry
God is always in control

When the thread
Of life-love-laughter
Gets all tangled in our sigh
Someone is still
Looking after
All the knots we can’t untie

Aint it precious,
Aint it perfect
We of mortal dust-to-dust
Never need to
Fret or worry
If our hearts can learn to trust

Trust Him with
What-if and maybe
Trust Him with this thread of Death
That becomes
A sacred lifeline
When it frays with our last breath
