Happy Mother’s Day!

Love and pride in the mother’s eyes, complete trust in the infant’s sleep


Veneration of the Lamb

“Lamb of God, you who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us!”

“What has happened to our instinct for unity?  The creatures know the rhythm of the earth.   They have not forgotten the oneness of which we are a part.  So in the Celtic world, they are messengers of Christ, the One who comes to reconnect us to the Heart of Being.”  (Christ of the Celts by J. Philip Newell)


Away in a Manger

Scan2_edited-3

Unmistakable pride

in the smile

on the mother’s face

bonding with her

babe asleep beside her

in utter security

in utter trust

of their caretakers

unknowing of their future fate

at the bloody hand

of man.


Mother and Child

Proud mother,

smiling unmistakable smile

as little lamb, curled up,

sleeps safely beside her,

for now.

Tomorrow

 both mother and child

will cry anguished tears,

 suffer a searing separation,

as they take little one away,

hopefully out of sight and sound

of mother,

to bring little lamb to slaughter

for a holiday meal.


Innocence Sacrificed

Newborn lambs

eat joyfully

and frolic freely,

 with abundant abandon

and love for life,

in utter oblivion

 of the upcoming holiday

for which so many will die.


Playful Innocence
