To Gaze

spinner.gif

I watch her set there, lovely

Beside the azure, crystal, stream

Sun laughing throughout her hair

Dandelions kissing her knees

She hums a song, familiar

Her mother once loved to sing

A song meant for her smile

Her name was the melody

Carefully, she plucks the petals

One by one, off the daisy's crown

Thinking of 'love me, love me not'

Releasing the tokens upon the ground

Her sky painted eyes sparkle

From the light of secret keys

Which unlock earth's treasure

When tears lace her soft cheeks

Although, the rapture of storms will rise

On her hillside, where sunflowers speak

She adorns a blessing beside her heart

-A crucifix, with dried, rose beads

She studies the clouds play masquerade

While they sail across a lazy sky

Curiously, they shift to change shape

Silently, she wonders deep inside~

-Why could I not be born a bird,

To soar with open arms, so free?

I would decorate each sunset;

And get lost within a night breeze

-Why can I not be dressed with wings,

To harbor the beauty of a dove?

Why is my gift, soil beneath my feet,

Has my flesh not suffered enough?

Then, windows of her eyes wept sorrow

-Like two panes that frame melting, stained glass

She raises her arms and face, to heaven

Worship renews her spirit at last

She can hear the calling whisper

-Of the wind caress the trees

Inhales the scent of blossoms

-While the earth beneath her breathes

I watch her set there, lovely

Beside the azure, crystal, stream

Sunlight laughing throughout her hair

Dandelions kissing her knees

I look for just a moment longer

Into the reflection, which is.. me

Dip my finger to twirl the water

To gaze at my spirit, dance in peace
