Day: May 3, 2016

When…..

When you have mothered,

A miracle inside,

And, like the endless ocean……

Have held depths,

No one could ever surmise……

 

When you have ceased the rain,

And ripped apart storms…..

And, like the thunder,

Have deafened and rebelled

All that fettered you under……

 

When you have carved your name

In the wildest of the wilds

And like the lion

Have roamed fearless,

Cared little, of thorns and spikes…..

 

When you have been sublime

Among the lowliest tribe

And like a fragrant rose

Have enthused the world

While, within, you froze……

 

When you have been all this

and more,

and yet the grace you become remains,

You are a beautiful woman,

In every speck of your body;

Beauty reigns……

 

 

“Hello?”, she barely manages to whisper.

His voice, though, is crisp and firm “Hello there, How are you?….”

The pause stifles his breath.

“I’m good. Is it raining there?”, she asks…..

“No, and there?”

“It is…….heavily”

“Okay, it is windy though here”

He suddenly jerks up and opens the blinds, he sees the clouds with her eyes, while she has her ears glued to her cellphone……

“Oh, good, it will rain soon enough”, she manages to speak.

Her voice,sounds too mild, like she just swallowed a lump, he knows, he knows…….

“Yeah, maybe……so it is your birthday, any plans…..”

“Ummm…..yes, I will be going out in the evening..”

“That’s nice….Okay then, enjoy your day…..”

He is leaving, she wants to be hearing him for eternity.

“Yeah, thanks”

“Bye”

“Bye”

And it rains even more……..from his eyes……
