Even the glaciers
retreat when the Virgin sighs—
owls blink in wonder.

  2. wow!! Such a vivid picture you paint!! Takes the breath away!! Wishing you well and glad to be back!

  3. Her sigh indeed… is heard around the world…

  4. I’m going up to see that exhibit on the 23rd-it looks like they allow you to take photos? Your images has certainly fueled the anticipation and excitement for me-I can’t wait to see this! Thank you.

  5. Oh – this is magical. I’m glad my power is back on so I could blog-hop this morning.

      We’re so used to having power at the flip of the switch that it’s almost a disaster when the switch doesn’t work! 😉

  6. This haiku delights me having spent time in the summer the past few years in the Canadian Rockies and Alaska where glaciers are prevalent. I can just see those glaciers reacting to Mary and the owl. Ah, I love owls, especially surprised ones. It has been great spending the last 12 days with you.

  7. It has been wonderful sharing these 12 days with you MMT. Thank you for your delightful haiku and beautiful images.

  8. a vivid picture in my mind, sensory, visual and auditory – beautiful! and the Guadalupe is a gem!

  9. a beautiful haiku reflecting wonder and awe

    much love…

  10. I was thinking of this post yesterday while watching the wonderful Creole Mass honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe live from the Vatican.

  11. what a poet you are…incredible!

  12. Can hear her sighing ~ lovely haiku as always ~ pray for me ~

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  13. I wonder if that’s the reason the Glaciers retreat—

  14. She will be sighing a lot over the Christmas period.

      Yes, I wouldn’t want to be in her shoes or sandals—or even discalced! 😉
