Today I went to where the Jeweled Madonna
awaits one who loves and needs her.
She leans up against that tree
at the base of the footbridge, to the right,
just behind that clump of foliage
It seems she is not yet needed
by passersby here.
Someone did stop and pick her up,
putting her back down facing the tree
so that the writing on the back shows...
the writing that says she is a gift and to take her.
I can think of many reasons for the turning
and I left it that way
as it is part of the journey.
for more of the 12 days of Mary
