Maiden Bride of Being


Daughter Child of the Muses
on the altar of your soul
betrothed now to TRUTH
the light of moons, stars and sun
the song of the many winds
shall you abide
troves, garland, pearls of peace
crest your heart
Maiden Bride of Being
now and ever blessed.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

  1. Hi Rose Marie-
    I am not sure why this poem, thee words leave me restless. I think underneath the pearl, and garland and sun moon and stars lies the "TRUTH" - getting to it was a journey, remembering it a challenge - having experiencing some of it - life changing. The altar of my soul? It is an offering, a gift to share - and took years to design.

    Love to you
    Gail
    peace.....

  2. Gail, I understand your feelings, we are ever in the midst of our own evolution. "Restless" is that state of being in pursuit of change and direction.

  3. Hi Rose Marie-

    Yes, I agree completely. Although the 'restless' I felt was a memory of parts of a long and challenging journey to self - not any current quest for change or definition as I know that I am here, I have arrived, and in tact!! :-)
    Love Gail
    peace.....

  9. Mark, You most certainly reflect a reverent presence and in a most special way have created a "sacred place" to share your TRUTH, WISDOM and FAITH. Thank you for all you do for so many.

  10. These lovely words...reflections on the lovliest of women. I have a special heart for this mother who made the supreme sacrifice and remained ever blessed. Blessings she bestowed on us all. (My most humble and grateful belief...)

    The painting, by the way, I saw in the Uffizi, along with Le Printemps! Bella, bella!
