WINTER VIRGIN MARY ...

Are you sometimes UTTERLY charmed
by simple YET uncommon HUMAN gestures ?
Walking on a SMALL street in Montréal this morning,
I spotted such a tender ACT OF LOVE
that it made my HEART swell and smile ...
And old BATH TUB shrine incrusted with WHITE pebbles
on the front LAWN of a duplex
caught my EYE on this EXTRA cold day ...
Inside, WARM and COZY, stood a VIRGIN blanketed in a RED
makeshift wool winter SHROUD with a pull-string ...
The very THOUGHT
of someone taking the time
to PROTECT this beloved religious icon
from the HARSH weather
made MY day ...
