Lost and Kept – Rita A Simmonds

Post 147 of 422

The angel left
The Mystery swelled
And swam
And slept.

How blessed is the womb
The Word passes through.
His cells settle in
Even after burst.
Her heart
And blood and brain
Permeable terrain
To nurse
The cry
The sword
The slain,
Through family flight
And narrow street
To breathless
On a tree.

How blessed
How blessed
How blessed
Is she.
All that’s lost
She keeps.
