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.
Mary, Maryam, Maria, Mares
So much more
Than a head bowed down
Arrow fierce and fast
Directed at the heart
No sin of error here
Cloak of power
Heart on fire
Flowing from the sacred well
Eternally walking on the bed of coals
You seduce me into dancing in the flames
Only the heart sees
The howling winds of compassion
Screaming through my ribcage
Finger by finger
Pomegranate juice flowing in my veins
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
