A Virgin a Day: Day Three

"Visions of the Virgin" created on Polyvore -
it won 1st place in the Collagists' Rollage contest. 


She is portrayed as a willing vessel
for the Christ child,
a bearer of other children
who stories seem to have been forgotten,
a dutiful wife, a woman who somehow
finds the strength to stand witness
for her beloved son in his final hours
and then to tend to his body in a burial ritual.

She is the approachable face of God.
The mother, the sister, the friend
that we can converse with.
The listening ear.

A spark of the feminine divine
whose role it is to balance the concept
of a hierarchical, warlike, tribal god
and bring balance to notions of the sacred.

She is the sacred within.
Our piece of the Divine Feminine.
