Serpents fell from trees where she walked,
And she passed them by without fear,
Fires broke from the lightning that stuck,
And she smiled and welcomed the blessing.
The wind cracked the tree limps that fell beside,
And with sadness she looked at her favorite tree,
The storm danced all around her and she stood still,
Prayed for the world and to the needy she ran.
Darkness brewed the unknown in the darker skies,
The zodiac moved and the lucky stars retrograded,
Ah’ she prayed for them too and smiled at fate,
Fate from every corner of horizons wrapped.
As the strength in her soul grew with her,
Ah’ an unusual word from an unusual face,
A dark dot touched a brightening dream,
And she woke to the reality and saw love.
Smile ran around her to find a reason to sprout,
Upon her face a shadow till this day unknown,
A threat it was not, as all that was echoed around,
Were the words of love, written in verses new.
Fear grew through her spine and consumed her to say “No”.
