MARY IN THE GARDEN written by: Mark Tulin Mary stands in front of the fountain, a white statue of dignity and honor, for squirrels to climb, the crows and Blue Jays to perch, a quiet shelter for the silence of the night. Mother Mary is in my imagination, a part of my everlasting soul. She has always meant more than the cement and resin that stands patiently with hands open to receive our blessings. The rose bush rubs against her face, fragrant with thorns and petals. She feels the California sunshine, an occasional coastal breeze, and the sound of music that plays from the kitchen window.
