with you

Mother Mary

We come to your garden

to remember Him.

At your feet we lay our gratitude

for your grace.

We surrender our earthly burdens

and accept the mystery of your miracle.

Mary, with your image in our hearts,

we possess everlasting calm.

We worry not if or when

our gardens will bloom,

trusting by His hand

all beauty meant for us

will be perfectly timed.

My art flows from the patterns & paths of my lived experience which ⏤ like yours ⏤ are at once deeply personal and entirely universal.
