a virgin a day

A Virgin a Day

From today, the first of December till Mary's Holy Day, the twelfth, I will be sharing Her with you as part of Rebecca's A Virgin a Day at Recuerda Mi Corazon.  If you want to join in, the link is here on my blog and her invitation is below.

Ave Maria
Mary, Maryam, Maria, Mares
Holy Woman

So much more
Than a head bowed down

Arrow fierce and fast
Directed at the heart
No sin of error here

Cloak of power
All-embracingly blue

Heart on fire
Flowing from the sacred well

Eternally walking on the bed of coals
You seduce me into dancing in the flames

Eyes blinded
Only the heart sees
And hears
The howling winds of compassion

Screaming through my ribcage
Cracked open
Finger by finger
Pomegranate juice flowing in my veins

Persephone’s ashes
Caked with the tears of Demeter
Entangled in the hair of Medusa

I follow where you lead
The perfume of your feet
The guiding light my holy woman

Sacred Am I

Ave Maria
