The 13th day

The 13th day

Written by Mel Brake

 

On the 13th day of May

Mother Mary appeared to the little

three children of Fatima

 

On the 13th day of March

Mother Mary appeared to me

while typing on my computer at 11:50am

 

Her apparitions was like a bolt

of lighting from the sky

My head began to tremble

like an earthquake and I held on

to my desk

 

The rumble lasted for a few seconds

but it felt like a life time

I was afraid to move

not sure of what just

happened and what condition my body was in

 

I thought it would be best for me

to walk outside in nature to ground the energy

 

Philadelphia was known for other apparitions

of Mother Mary and I went to one of those sacred sites

which is covered by trash and beer bottles

 

During the recital of three Hail Marys

the wind responded with powerful forces in kind

I could sense her presence again

Speaking directly to my heart

 

Until the Fatima children

there was no direct messages of warnings

but only motherly and worldly love

 

I began to pray for my own

Earthly mother and father

brothers and sisters

nieces nephews and friends

 

Walking a circular path back to my car

I saw what I thought was a little

girl in pink walking towards me

 

As it grew closer

I could tell it was a Mylar balloon

in pink and white with hearts

and the words: Mary you are sweet

The balloon came to a stop and rested at my feet

 

On the 13th day of May

Mother Mary appeared to the little

three children of Fatima

 

On the 13th day of March

Mother Mary appeared to me

while typing on my computer at 11:50am

 

As worry as I can be sometimes

about life friends and family

and who the next Pope will be

 

It comforts me to know that

Mary you are sweet and their for me
