Fairy Dear

Fairy Dear

Fair Lady, awakening from the core of a flower dear
Lending to nature, her gentle touch and caring tear
The pond has never witnessed such a lovely Fae
In rapture of her presence, nature gently sway
Beauty to behold reflects on the pond
She is Protector
She is Guardian
She comes forth from within
Deep source of infinity

My Shadow

 

My Shadow

The earth sings
Yet I cannot hear

With heavy heart
Dark clouds engulf me
Alone in the dark,
I wait
Drowning in sorrow
Self pity, abandonment,
Unexpected changes

Two cement feet
To lead me on

Clouds hang low
Closing in around me
Obscuring my view

Alone
With my shadow
Its face
Mirroring pain
Bursting
With oceans of tears

Shadow sits there
Staring at me

Wanting to escape
I start crawling up
The slippery ground
Streams of tears
Gurgle in my path
Sliding and slipping
This, a formidable climb

Clouds disperse
Showing the edge
Over the top I leap

My shadow has followed me
Exhausted, I surrender
