Five Joyful Mysteries

cirrus in a winter sky
an unopened letter in a thick white envelope
the sound of snow falling
two birds together on a branch
a child reading aloud

Five Luminous Mysteries

a cup of cold water
a pair of very sharp scissors, used for cutting hair so that it falls gently,
***effortlessly to the ground
a bowl of soup
light bulbs
a loaf of good bread

Five Sorrowful Mysteries

the eyes of animals in pain
embryos frozen in time and space
naked young women in hideous undergarments
umbrellas with broken backs
empty vessels

Five Glorious Mysteries

the space in between things eternally divided
Euler's identity
Einstein's cross
