Different virgins

Image of the virgin
In a fountain with Jesus on her lap
The water flows from the right
Life giving fountain.

Image of the Virgin – walled garden
She with her baby
She is the fruitful, nourishing walled garden
And on her face she ponders
She sorrows
She sits in a reverie

Burning bush
She is the burning bush
Her clothes a covered in branches of flame and fire
Red hot
Arms outreaching face inward smiling
The promise of the Old Testament

Never fading rose
She is the never fading rose
Her garment – creations plants and flowers
Fruitfully pollinating, blooming in their prime
Her garments overgrown
With fragrant fruitfulness
Baby in her arms.
