La Divina Pastora (The Divine Shepherdess), artist unknown, Museo Zacatecano Zacatecas, México

In her dreams
she gambols with lambs—
white and black.
~~ ~~ ~~
Holy Shepherdess,
lead us to the rivulet,
where your sheep may drink.

  1. Interesting image….I love the subtle colours…also the profound words…..thank you!

  2. It’s peaceful, almost like folk art. Mexican folk art I guess, but the colors are so soft and unusual.

  3. Yes, different than any others, I love new(to me) discoveries!
    And your haiku too♥ ♥

  4. wonderful; have a nice Sunday

    much love…

  5. The image is so serene and so is your haiku.

  6. Love the idea of the Divine Shepherdess!!

  7. What a spectacular piece of art in its soft, pastel colors–the divine shepherdess, keeping white and black sheep safe. I’ve long had an affinity for sheeps and lambs and when I decorated my tree last night, I loved each lamb and sheep I hung.

  8. I love the whimsical and storytelling nature to this haiku. Beautifully done!

  9. Gamboling with lambs sounds like a pleasant enterprise! 😉


  10. The shepherdess tends to her flock in a loving way, teaching and providing direction to ewe and lamb alike. Caring and caressing, she attends to all keeping them all safe – and the wool borne creatures appreciate her presence…

  11. holy shepherdess
    immaculate conception
    multicolored flock


  12. A beautiful piece of sacred art. Love the subtle blending of colours and the pretty frame.

  13. Wonderful pictures and poem.. I love the word rivulet..

  14. A beautiful story … loved the fairy tale feeling it evoked 🙂

  15. This is such a different take. Absolutely brilliant.

  16. Truly lovely! I’m off to Mexico myself this weekend!

  17. This is so different…

  18. I love the spirituality of this. Sublime.
