A Sonnet for MA*

T horough is the will that best describes her
H onest closely tailing behind humble
E arth is certainly the ground she stands on
L ike she was from heaven sent to bless it

P ublicity was never her domain
O bscurity being better than most
N umeraries she would rather avoid
F or her faith is neither a crown nor sword.

E rstwhile credentials do not hound her name
R estrained as she is by noble manner
R esponding only to the call of grace
A ccording to her heart’s appointed place.

D eparture deeply deems her legacy
A sanctuary that rhymes with Mary.

*Mary’s Apostle

avatar About Abraham de la Torre

I'm married to a lovely, loving woman who blessed me with two wonderful sons. Poetry is my passion, even if it's on a mood level. Like, I'm a geyser one moment and drained the next. Each outpouring, however, is a personal testament to truth, a poem being empty were it phony. I got the genes from my Dad, who passed away, in 2003, at 77. He was my most avid audience. There are other inspiring sources but Dad was the darnedest. Instead of miss him, I fill the void with verses.
