Blessed Virgin

from by Karl Mohr Audio-Yo

/

lyrics

She reveals her grace when I pull away
from the computer screen and breathe.
Folding through my clasped hands,
she whispers heaven into me.
Bathed in bluest light,
the blessed virgin reaches out extending her hands:
a ghostlike mist raining soft mint leaves
and her breast heaves
with the woody life of dead and fallen trees.

Floating in this starlit bog,
rotting in the city stench,
I look skyward.
I am earthbound but I call to her,
Ave Maria, the blessed love.

Her fertile female force, it opens a shaftway,
a shimmering causeway.
I welcome her clarity and it floods me,
like a waterfall flushing my soiled,
modern filth out to the sea.
I return to the old ways a little -
and pass out.

And like the rainbow colours
of an oil stream in the water,
nature's your mother,
space for your children
and time is your father.

At the apex of this bliss,
the world spins and lifts away.
