Wife and Mother

en-fleshed with God
… She “knew” the Lord

Therefore, a man leaves
his father and his mother
and cleaves to his wife,
becoming one in flesh. (Genesis 2:24)

Like man for wife yearning,
two completed in one,
as love in love burning:
God’s creation plan done.

Miriyam “knew” no man,
a seed of trust her part,
love of God with passion,
humankind’s hope, the start.

… She who “bore” the Lord
Before I formed you in the womb
God knew you, and before you
were born I consecrated you. (Jeremiah 1:5)

God knew Mary blessing her,
prophetess in God’s land,
faith like ours yet deeper –
married, without a band.

Gentle mother wrapping
life with love in her womb,
something like awaiting
his rebirth from the tomb.

… She who is wife unwedded
Rejoice, bridal chamber
of seedless marriage

O Rejoice bride unwedded. Akathistos Hymn, Fourth Stasis

Rejoice for little things
wife-mothers do all day.
In marriage, life she brings,
One among us to stay.

Theos, God offers love:
Deus, New Creation …
joins mother in one-ness
with Presence, poesis.

Mary, mother of life,
the theopoiesis,
Mary, wife and mother,
Deo in excelsis!
