In Her Heart

January 8, 2019

It is part of the genius of woman
(I wish I remembered where I’d heard it)
to internalize those she loves,
as though there were a “copy” of them
within her psyche.

This connects with the Blessed Virgin Mary
“pondering all these things in her heart”.

Mary takes us into her heart like that.

Nothing is “external” to her except sin.
She takes everything and everyone in,
contemplating it deeply.

She’s not half-listening,
half distracted.

She’s all there.

I have her full attention.

I am her business.

She will ponder me & what I have to say,
giving me a gestated response.
