A Blue Nun

praying so silently

bright lights open her eyes

her lacecap just beginning to grow

first mimicking the sunshine’s golden rays

then her collar explodes into blue-tit lacy petals

while her heart and purpose reach for Him simultaneously

until He said ‘Light Be’

she hadn’t existed

and for this simple reason

she will kneel at His feet

  1. Sweet. Gotta wonder though: does “she” have freedom of choice? (Because a day may come when that sense of gratitude will not just be enough to keep her at His feet.)
