Our Lady of Decay

 

“Our Lady of Decay”Regan O'Callaghan Our lady of decay, lisdoonvarna, county clare, statute, installation

shimmering fragile

mother to the exposed
sister to the weary
wisdom in her smile
truth in her eyes
shall harvest tomorrows meal
bless yesterdays sins
within her is our light
of the universe
on the outside she is
shimmering fragile
