Back to the Earth

by She of the Stars   Dec 22, 2018


The cold breeze
curled around her,
as the green grasses
twined around her feet.

The setting sun
took away the light shades
of her hair,
as the silver moon
slowly lit a spark in her eyes.

Barefooted,
she made her way
through the dark fields,
as she laid herself down
her body lightly
pressed against the ground.
 
The whole universe
opened its arms for her,
as the earth beneath
hugged her tightly.

    At first read I thought that the adjective use was okay, nothing spectacular. Then I arrived at the final stanza. What amazing imagery. This poem doesn't take itself too seriously. I would say it is efficiently written throughout saving the genius for that final stanza. An easy 10 for me.

    I come back to this piece and I feel a sense of belonging, of wonder but mostly acceptance. That final image of the earth hugging her is personal and makes me feel both sorrow and comfort that she is being heard somehow.

    So happy to see this on the front page. Congrats! Really looking forward to see more poetry from you in the new year :)
