Our Lady of Decay. Lisdoonvarna, County Clare. 2013.

"Our Lady of Decay"

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
