Reflections from the Hourglass

The sand in my granny's antique hourglass reminds me of her oft-said prayers offered in our behalf even before we were born. All grandmas are not that way. Living her quiet life. mine found time for intercession. God was the only father she had known.

    Thank you, Anne Lise, for hinting at the mistake in my piece here. I have edited it and appreciate your comment. No real requirement for the contest except a shape poem, but I wanted matching syllable counts in both verses. It is not the story of my own grandma or anyone I know - but is too true of some fine ladies.
