Stabat Mater

Amongst the thousands staring

and no-one caring ,

We too stared and stood

next to the Woman alone and weeping

as her hopes were seeping

away into the sinking Sun ;

The crowds had been shouting

with each cheer doubting

the innocence of that Woman’s son ;

We too stood and watched

a woman alone and weeping

as her hopes were seeping ,

and heard in the crowd something odd

perhaps the son of that Woman

was truly the Son of God ;

Amongst the thousands staring

and no-one caring ,

We too stared and stood..

    The suffering of Virgin Mary,as Jesus’s mother, during the Crucifixion and it’s impact on the crowd is depicted .The complicity of humanity is revealed in the lines: ”We too stared and stood’.”

    The birth of Prophet Jesus (PBUH) is worth reading. I read Chapter Maryam (Mary) in the holy Quran, several times in a year. This is my personal favorite. The ordeals of pious mother Maryam (PBUH) is heart wrenching. It’s a touchy account. You have revived it painstakingly.
