Martha stays busy in the kitchen, preparing lunch and many other meals,
doing the work of God in a busy way,
as she does diligently every day.
As we all need to, in order to get by.
Meanwhile, Mary sits nearby but alone in a quiet room
writing thoughts of God.
Beginning the day with the chirping of awakening birds,
And memories on night prayers smoking like incense around her body.
She remains calm and peaceful, tuning out the noise of the scullery nearby.
