Today was a day like no other day...





Today was a day

like no other day


Today the wind whispered my name

and the clouds branded the sky

With accents of fire and gold

Ancient gold


I was eating clouds

and my essence

became

the lighter essence

that it is


A day of honoring

what has come to pass

and begin anew

what has always been


A day when

my lustrous heart

heard the rolling thunder

and began beating

in harmony

impregnated by silence


A day when time

became its opposite

and nothing

needed to be done

now or later


A day when the visitors

in my ear

were ancient sages,

lords and mermaids

unrestrained and unbridled heroes

of a never forgotten tale


A day beyond

good and evil

A day when heroes

dropped their bows

and arrows melted

in the sunset fire


A day when poetry

savored the wild flowers

of distant lovers


A day when the princess in me

died

with an overdose of beauty

and my soul knew

eternity

in a day
