by Luci Shaw
As if until that moment
had happened since Creation
As if outside the world were empty
so that she and he were all
there was - he mover, she moved upon
As if her submission were the most
dynamic of all works: as if
no one had ever said Yes like that
As if one day the sun had no place
in all the universe to pour its gold
but her small room.
Happy Feast of the Annunciation!!
