Tenterhooks

by Mary Harwell Sayler

remembering Mary, Mother of Jesus

Not feathers – just an impression
of feathers

as wisps of light
cosseted her,

causing shine to pour
from her eyes, her pores

                           perfectly
filling her
                           with God –

Light producing Light!

Mary Harwell Sayler began reading the Bible and writing poems in childhood and never stopped! Eventually, she placed over 2,500 poems, prayers, articles, and children’s stories as well as books in all genres, many of which can be found on Amazon. After collecting prayers and promises from the major translations of the Bible, she paraphrased them into contemporary English, and published the Book of Bible Prayers then Kneeling on the Promises of God.  Mary also selected poems from her previously published works for A Gathering of Poems. She provides online help for poets and other communicators for Christ while remaining active on FacebookTwitterLinkedInTumblr, and, gratefully, Agape Review.
