D.H. Lawrence 2: Mary's Yes

I imagine this to be Mary's response to the coming of the Holy Spirit after the annunciation.

From The Rainbow

"She turned, and saw a great white moon looking at her over the hill. And her breast opened to it, she was cleaved like a transparent jewel to its light. She stood filled with the full moon, offering herself. Her two breasts opened to make way for it, her body opened wide like a quivering anemone, a soft, dilated invitation touched by the moon."
