She is here
and of another world
she is cat she is reptile
she is primitive she is
primal aboriginal
of the future she is
of the stars she is
of light light as a bubble she is
she glows with pale opal
planet fire of Andromeda
she glows with distant pink star light
she is effervescence she is
panther viper mysterious she is
she has scales
made of sirocco Nile pyre Pachamama
part leopard iguana salmon
she is a denizen of the sea
an ancient mermaid she is
first peoples
she is hope and trouble
trouble she is and hope
she is right here here now
close kin she is to Kali
Lakshmi and Tara
Quan Yin and Ereshkigal
Bast and Hathor
she goes with the wind
and curls with the waves
she is light she is
sea she is
deep she is
high she hums
a deep vibration
heard only by the moon
by whippoorwills
will o’ wisps and willows
she breathes slow
and with each breath
she dances a universe
of noctilucent veils
while in her silence
pregnant she lies waiting--
