  • Grandmother

    Awaken by fears
    streaming down my cheeks
    curl up in a ball
    childlike
    rocking in and out
    of flashes of mourning
    a light cracks the silence
    a hand offeren and taken
    into the green of moonlight
    she said to me,
    "Do not be afraid of the unknown, my child.
    We all must embrace it.
    For everything around you
    we see you through your journey
    The earth like a mother
    will ground your path
    and catch you when you fall.
    The sky like a father
    will hold you in his arms
    and speak onto you his wisdom.
    The sun like a grandfather
    will warm you with his love
    and watch you in your growth.
    And, the moon like your grandmother
    will shine in the darkest hour
    to guide you
    and follow you wherever
    your heart leads you.
    You will never be without these things, my child.
    you will never be alone."
    And upon my grandmothers lap was peace.
    Aho.
