"Marjorie", by Cindy
From that dark moment
A floodlight upon
A dead branch in snow
Reveals a Person
Inside and outside
Shining on the lost.
For one dark moment
She feels forgotten.
Then the light expands,
Embracing her tears.
"*Elizabeth*", by Cindy
Trees outnumber *Elizabeth*
Clouds blossom Streets carpet
Locks harbor Walls garden
Glass pictures Steel poses
Lamps fountain Stones nurture
surround and defend....
Ann plays only the black keys.
The harsh realities of her life
As ex-wife and 5-time-mother
Want another scale than mine
To remind THEM of THEIR ways
Until the day she sings again.
Denied a face she hides beneath
an ocean of uncried tears
Cry the tears : now the ocean dries.
A plain appears : Eden, in dying pains.
Then sings a soft thunder yet living:
"All time begins within."
"All worlds begin within."
Here IS the blood of the suffering of all Mankind.
A coiling stream about the tree stains the soil.
And though long dead the tree so fed shows:
a light, a star, a fruit of her first-born
No faceless serpent, now she returns.
Here SHE comes to dance if allowed to be.
Just cry the tears and the ocean dries.
So souls will drown the Lord of Lies.
And joy will dance as jealousy dies.
