Falling stars streak across a mysterious night
And I gaze from the silence of loneliness
Wondering how I too
Once lived so bright
And yet I now cascade through the endless blackness of grief.
That halo around the moon
Warns of inclement weather
The reign of terror in my thunderous beating heart
Does not wash away the shadows…
My tears flow, fear I may drown
This wailing winter seeks my cold lonely heart
Its chill caresses the mangled gates, bent by many a lover
“Let me in” it seduces
Akin to my damp and dark soul
For though spring has come and thaws from without
The truest warmth must always come from within
As the new blossoms of spring unfurl
Winter’s grip has no choice but to loosen
The icy grip that has kept me in frozen limbo
I inhale deeply the heady scent of the hyacinth …
The sun God Apollo wakens from his slumber
Fly Oh Apollo Fly
Blaze your chariot across this barren Boread doom
Set free Gaia’s sensuous aromas
Let growth rejoice and life replenish
Let the waning warmth I’ve guarded so jealously
And the failing hope I’ve hoarded selfishly
Be shared and thus grow stronger
After being held a captive witness
To the roaring of another fickle March
The lamb returns unto the fold, docile and loving
“April ‘come she will” with perhaps a new love
Yes, me looking in the mirror and learning to
Love who I can become; and accepting who I am!
A halo can be seen around the moon before it rains
The blessing of cleansing
The hyacinth is a symbol of peace, commitment, and beauty
A pledge of virtues that cannot be frozen
March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb
The wildest things can become the most beautiful
For the Change we need begins within.
Did you know;
– The water hyacinth is the symbol of the son god Apollo, and also symbolises power and pride.
– Boreas in Greek mythology is the north wind famous/infamous as the bringer of winter.
