Mexico
Through Harold’s Lens:

Please start the music first, as you are enjoying the images and words.
You will receive the full sensual experience of this story.

Ave Maria. Schubert Opera:

Atop
Touching our Lord
Draped in cascading folds of gold
The Immaculate Conception.

Nestled below
Silently in prayer
Whispers of peace
Whispers of help
Whispers for our poor.

Draped in flowing folds of white
Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.

Wrinkled old man
Rags of threads
Rags of holes
Shuffles slowly
Cobblestones.

Soft knock
Rugged mesquite door
Rusted hinge creaks
Angelic face
Peers
From within.

Humbled old man
Twisted
Gnarled hands
Paints cross on chest
Head bows.

Aging hands of love
Quietly pass nourishment.

Whispers
Of love
Of comfort

Old old
Our sick
Our poor
Our lonely.

Amen
