The Mary in Every Woman
As all women do,
She had a knowing.
Not of everything

  The Mary in Every Woman

As all women do,
She had a knowing.
Not of everything,

But certainly of those things
Important to, but not spoken of,
By her husband and children.

She knew of loves and desires.
And of
That which was feared
And of
That which was needed. 

She did not speak of her knowing.
At times she could not even
Bring it to mind.
There was no need to do so,
Because she always knew.

Author Comments:

This poem,  found in Heart to Heart ~ Considered Sentiments for Teatime, is about women, especially mothers.  Women often know things that they do not realize.  Over the millennia, women have developed their sixth sense to help them manage their place and responsibilities in the world.  The name Mary in the title is, as you might have guessed, a reference to Mary, the mother of Jesus.  It was said that she tucked many things away in her heart, things that she often didn't understand.  She was like the rest of us, it might seem.       skp
