Poetry

Legendary

“Because
she
is the light
of stars
glittering
in the darkness.”

She is what legends are made of — the sunrise on the beach, searing the horizon with oranges, reds, and yellows with the brilliance of her smile. She is the green mountainside on a warm spring day, peppered with blue bird laughter that echoes for miles. She is a silver moonlit ocean of eyes shimmering with secretive waves. She is the wind in winter, carrying away those salty tears. She is the call of the majestic eagle by day, and the hunting owl by night, ever watchful. She is the anger of rumbling thunder, the static synapses of heat lightning in summer. But, if she is gone, she remains, beating within your broken heart, and pointing the compass to lead you home. Because she is the light of stars glittering in the darkness.

  1. Lovely! The way I perceive it is this: ‘she is’ represents the metaphor of the transcendent soul. The historical self is there, but more amazing than this – the eternal self. She is ONEness. Thank you for this lovely piece of writing!
