Ikon

She holds him to the world

A mirror which reflects

.

Our hopes of divinity

in the eyes of a child

.

A shield which displays

the genesis of humankind

.

She holds him to the world

and looks away.

  1. Profound! I love the conclusion, it intrigues me that she looks away. I’m not asking you to explain why, I plan on spending some time thinking about that last line. It intrigues me. Somehow it fits my vision of Mary. This is a truly beautiful post.
