After the Ascension

What did Mary think
after she saw her Son born up
triumphant,
her life’s love and work
lifted up and crowned by God,
and she, still here,
heart full and wondering
what new thing God could possibly
have in mind for her.

A second annunciation
at the foot of the cross,
a new purpose left to ponder
and life to be lived.

But the same yes
to a Will unknown,
the same readiness
to be formed and filled,
ever attentive
to the hand of her Lord.
