Goddess

The only sound was soft water

Trickling

Somewhere in the not too distant…

Her eyelids flickered

Softly

Eventually opening

Like a flower

Slowly

To the Sun.

 

She blinked,

Long and deep.

Drinking in the sweet sunlight.

Her eyes like two big butterflies

Flapping their wings

Welcoming in the new day.

 

She inhaled

Like a ghost

Being brought back to Life

Taking that first sweet sip

And exhaling

Into the rhythms of Life.

 

Hair cascaded down her bare back

Rolling in ringlets,

Slithering like snakes,

Down her bare back.

 

A dainty hand

Breaks them apart.

Her human heart begins to beat

The resonance like a drum

Beating proudly from her chest

Like a lioness.

 

The Goddess stands

Fully formed

Golden.
