In Blue Veils
Celebrate the mystery
We drape her in silk veils of blue
and blur the lines of fame and truth.
We speak of heaven; say we know her.
The mother we paint in azure.
We behold her framed in gold.
She’s the lapis lazuli of the Silk Road.
Her constancy like ocean waves
rocks and cradles the Son she gave.

So we drape her, cover her face.
Imagine a beauty—a place
we cannot touch. If she could see
through this broken glass, our uncertainty,
Would she want to craft us anew?
Cover us, too, in shades of blue?
–Margaret Simon, from Illuminate

“Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.”

The light
circles
like a ripple in calm water.

Brighter
than morning sun,
this evening star beams

Illuminating
dust particles to dance
around his little head.

He nurses,
content and strong,
pulling my heart.
