Mary went into the hill country with haste...

and stayed with Elizabeth about three months. Luke 1:39,56

 

The Visitation

In the morning it takes the mind a while

To find the world again, lost after dream

Has taken the heart to the underworld

To play with the shades of lives not chosen. 

 

She awakens a stranger in her own life, Her breath loud in the room full of listening.

Taken without touch, her flesh feels the grief

Of belonging to what cannot be seen.

 

Soon she can no longer bear to be alone.

At duck she takes the road into the hills.

An anxious moon doubles her among the stone. 

A door opens, the older one’s eyes fill.

 

Two women locked in a story of birth.

Each mirrors the secret the other heard.

                        ~ John O’Donohue: Conamara Blues p.63
