As for me, I am a wife,a mother, a Sinai nurse (NYC – 1962),a poet. Prayer and daily Mass feed me. Lioness  is my way of evangelizing, a persistent shout out for God.

My Cry, Your Heart, My God

Reaching for You in the Night, I marvel.
What worlds my prayer spans!
The darkness of Space and Ages
Is penetrated by Your Light,
Pierced by my cry of recognition.

My will, like Longinian sword,
Penetrates Your Heart,
Tapping perpetual Springs.
Hallowed walls of Flesh part
To welcome me, a sinner, to sweet repose.
