Weather-beaten

O battered Guadalupe,
What is there to celebrate?
Your gown’s reduced to tatters
Even as you watch and wait.
 
Yet in your loving presence
We find mercy, peace and grace,
For there’s unending sunshine
In your weather-beaten face.

The Vanity of Riches

La Virgen de Guadalupe protects a grave, Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona
 


The vanity of riches,
The poverty of wealth—
No woman with a sound mind
Thinks she can buy good health.
 
Shrouds have no ample pockets
For silver, gems or gold.
We go out empty-handed—
Life can’t be bought or sold.

At a wayside shrine
a weary mother pauses,
hoping to find strength.

At a wayside shrine
weary pilgrims pause to pray—
empty hearts are filled.
