St. Regina (patron of shepherdesses and torture victims)

from a distance,

you must have looked

like you were knee-deep

in clouds.

from the bottom of the hill,

you were a monument,

something to climb towards.

from the sky,

you resembled a swimmer

being swallowed by the surf.

from here,

you look as if

you are emerging from the smoke.

as if you are already

beyond this earth.
