1 Prayer to Mary

Where are You hiding in this bleak time?

The grey sky is covering where I stand.

This is Your time to 

Dig in the rubble,

And search for my heart,

Or at least to hold my hand.

2 Another Prayer to Mary

You are at the end of my in breath,

So close 

Yet out of reach.

The climber swings free, and

In a panic cannot reach the rope.

The grey sky is below.

3. Knowing is Hope

Now look, light begins to light the snow.

Look, the leaves shimmer, I know they rustle.

I cannot hear, but I know they rustle.

No matter my deafness, they rustle.

For now, that is enough,

To know that

Out of earshot

Leaves are rustling in the breeze.

    WoW. Beautiful Alice! Did you stack all the After the Fall juices on the same pallet? 😉 the rustling leaves are the young Beech who hold onto their leaves till spring ♥️
