An Ekphrastic poem

and the image that inspired it.

Shelter
Take shelter in the arms
of our Lady of the Woods
she will lift all sorrow to the heavens
where the healing of the universe
will ease away the pain
mother earth will care for the spirit
while the body will rest well
lying dormant through the winter
and when springtime comes
it comes with hope
change fresh growth
a new awareness of birth
life pain death and rebirth
and a fragmented heart will heal

take shelter in the arms
of our lady of the woods

    1. Ahh thanks babe, I’m getting braver with my poetry, once upon a time I wouldn’t have had the confidence to post it.
      Enjoy Spain, anywhere in particular? I loved Seville but only had a day there x 🙂 x

I would love to hear from you . . .
