An unusual kind of revelation, prompted by a bible verse.
It was you
who had the moon under your feet

         The sea covered me completely

on his unframed canvas
across ground floor galleries

         and seaweed wrapped around my head
in even circles of cyan and sapphire.

It was you
whose dress was the sun

         The artist captured you completely

on a soft sky
across surfaces of swelling oceans

         and brushes danced along your body
in even waves of brilliance and betrayal.

Revelation 12:1 “There was a woman, whose dress was the sun and who had the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.”

Jonah 2:5 “The sea covered me completely, and seaweed wrapped around my head”
