Life lines



Baby fingers

Skin on skin

Fingers wrapped around fingers

In a circle surrounding the table of food

Hands together continuously

Life lines touching

No one person is required to give a blessing

The blessing is in each line

On, in and under the skin

Formed in the calluses

Promised in the baby fingers

Blessings surround the gathering

Because of the gathering

Consecrated by hands touching hands in a circle
