My Loving Mother

My Loving Mother

A Poem by Moonflower

My Loving Mother

Brilliant Goddess

Shining in my darkness

You are Light, Love, and Redemption

I fall desperately into your sacred embrace

My heart thundering in my weak breast

As my rib cage shakes in fear and exhaustion

I fall, down and down, shuddering under your wings

And I feel that featherlight touch, savoring the bliss

of your ominence

I can't look upon your face

shadowed by the sun

I feel the earth quake, your eminent power

reigning through out the lands

And your beauty adornes the world

Encompassing any other, any wonder

I fall back, emptied of any doubts or confusion

My body succumbs, relieved of this

Sin and filth

And I feel the weightlessness, emptiness

I sigh, sigh out that last churning breath

Expelled, and I feel unshelled

Your brightness

Love, like an ocean tide, pulling me in

Tucking me under soft wings and pillowy breast

Your porcelain skin like a refuge, I am safe

Safe from the physical, the impenetrable, the darkness.

Nice piece- I loved the imagery and phrasing throughout this. I would consider possibly breaking it up a bit, but otherwise, I think it was very well done.

This throws back to the myths and legends, deep as time and as powerful... the humility before nature that is sadly lacking in our time. Masterful work...

A different sort of poem.

The poem is amazing. Remind me of a Native American tale of earth protector. I like the feel and description. I love your usage of the language. I believe the Queen of Heaven and Earth would be disappointed in what we done to this beautiful planet. I like the last lines. A outstanding poem.
