She placed the blazing Sun in the middle of her forehead
and the Moon in the pearl of her earrings.
She swathed her body in the rising red desert
and adorned her hair with the flower of Hibiscus.
The days were long
but there were fortresses she needed to build.
The oceans were calm
but she had to harness to safety, those in rocking boats.
In her heart lotuses bloomed, and stars in her womb
and she birthed a new safe world
for those hurt, wounded and seeking love.
