Mexican Virgin

She is revered in Mexico
the brown-skinned lady
with sweet eyes like
pools of chocolate,
with a mother's
compassionate heart.

The holy lady,
worker of miracles.

Omnipresent in Mexico.

For more virgins
or to join the procession,

Lady, hear me as I pray,
Guard me in the pilgrim way;
Guide my hands and guide my feet;
Teach my lips to be discreet
So that as I speak I may
Render grace by all I say.
Help me, Lady, chaste and kind,
Bend my will to your fair mind.

It is beautiful Meri--and such a wonderful statement in my mind in connection with liberation theology. I love the stars on her robe and the allusion to "Like Water for Chocolate" that you make here. Very nice!

This is the heart and soul of Mexico, isn't it? She is beautiful. I love your words too and the extra bonus with the wonderful prayer left by Magical Mystical Teacher!
