Praying Mental Rosaries, Intoning Words Familiar

Hail Mary, full of grace,
               the Lord is with you.
The Lord is with me too.
He whispers in loud soothing words
                  that resonate like
                   liquid softly fluent.
His watchfulness always lingering
                   in the pushing of
                      this steel plated city
                         where I am trapped.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
               the Lord is with you.
The Virgin Queen of Heaven
     intercedes for all of us.
She intercedes for me too.
She prays in splendid atmosphere
               anguishing over every
                      sin I am thinking.
Her once-flesh hands twinned in
                 ever steady prayer.
Shapes populate in my always troubled
                               daily life.
They upset and tangle the soothing
                 urgings I feel God placing
                            in my contemplations.
 Hail Mary, full of grace,
               the Lord is with you.
The pleasing phasing of spiritual halo's
                   surrounds me in constant
I'm praying mental rosaries, intoning
            words familiar, yet, so loved.
So firm in comfortable places where
                         I come to God.
This straggling pretence of reality
              that we call human-kind;
is not as clear as the affable prayers
          of Blessed Mary, my holy Mother.
Standing or sitting does not matter.
                                 Nothing of flesh
                                      ever does.
What is critical are the prayers of
                           faithful gathered
in presence in Christ's Sacred Mass.
I shall be there too, joining my voice
                 in time honoured assistance,
"Hail Mary, full of grace,
               the Lord is with you."
