It is the second.
God comes second to our Voice.
But this choice is the heaven in the wrinkled hand.
This choice wrinkles the rosary
and smooths the conscience
and rocks the mind of the dark-haired man
who is highly logical, with his
hand on his chin and
no rosary in his hand.
Are those wrinkles evidence
of your devotion?
Emotion wrinkles the age spots that dictate
the course of action that runs
according to your conscience.
head bowed in humility,
eyes on the heaven of her wrinkled hands;
head raised in confidence,
eyes on the heaven of her three-man God
who makes all men free.
Each has hands.
Each has a choice that
comes second to our Voice.
It is heaven and it smooths and rocks and wrinkles.
