Woman of Earth


beside the statue of Mary

is a vase with a tall

array of burgundy flowers

and green leaves

with three large fronds

reaching beside Mary’s

shoulder –

the image conveys

a woman of gravitas


flower petals

leap high in the air

around Mary’s statue

driven by the currents

of an air vent from the ground.

There is a burgundy flower

in Mary’s hand,

and the statue has

a brown dress

with a blue hem

of contemplation.



woman of the earth

interconnected with nature

belonging to our earthly home

with flowers, trees, leaves,

birds, air, sky, sun and moon,

not a separated self

but one attuned to the cosmos
