Poem: "Shining Beads"

This poem came out of the January 5, 2021 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] ari_the_dodecahedron. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] ng_moonmoth.  This poem belongs to the series Arts and Crafts America.

"Shining Beads"
-- a séadna

Beads on wire shine in sunlight;
Let them slip through hands like seeds,
Sprouting flowers on a two-strand.
Art needs craft and beauty, beads.

The séadna is an Irish quatrain with complex features.
