The Birthing

In darkness, the miracle crafting,
Exit from the womb, now searching,
Pain searing, room ever crowding,
Ready now, behold, the birthing.
~ D.F.

Patroness of the Unborn

In the Making

The Making

With patient love, watchful, guarding,
The Eden within her being,
For the Tree of Life, at last flowering,
God-is-with-Us, in the making.
~ D.F.

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,” which means “God is with us.”
~ Matthew 1:23



An ocean within, drifting,
The hour racing, late,
Until Mary at last, finding,
A refuge, a home, a bed.

~ D.F.


This flower reminds me of a trophoblast, an early embryo, which drifts in the womb before finally implanting.
