by fearless fallen angel
Age Group: Adult
My mother wraps herself in fire,
Orange and gold and reds on pyre.
It is the glory that she reaps,
Before she lies herself to sleep.
The rain and wind will bring to pass,
The nakedness upon us fast.
And then, my mother will lay bare,
Vast within stark beauty there.
Her breasts upon the rushing shores,
A change to give the gull that soars.
Empty womb of time and grace,
We'll finally look upon her true face.
Instead of riotous colors of spring,
We'll see the beauty of simple things.
The lines of trees stretched as her hair.
Immense and totally lovely-- spare.
The curves and mounds of her own defense,
Such easily impressed upon our sense.
The grace of winter's blanket of white,
Blinding us with glorious light.
My mother, earth, is great and strong,
She's carried us for so, so long.
I await her wakening in the spring,
To turn the world round to sing.
In the time that shall pass til then,
I'm grateful for the quiet bend.
My mother, she is laid so bare,
That I wish to crawl in glory, there.
