Theotókos: Greek, "god-bearer," a title given by Orthodox Christians to the Blessed Virgin Mary.


I put an icon
of the Theotókos
above Elena's drawing
of a wee clearing
in the Wisconsin woods


Elena's "off religion" these days
but I think she'd appreciate
the feminine principle

the Woman's embracing gaze

Short, sparse, and a wonder to read. Nicely done.

There is some poetic magic in the first stanza for me. It's very "present," very visible. I know the Wisconsin woods, well, perhaps that's the connection.

I really like this. I think Elena will too. ;)
