And Here We Are
And here you are, such a fine woman.
So far traveled from the little girl
Who sang to the moon
through her bedroom window.
Ariel, afloat at sea.
And here I am, wise too late,
Watching you make your way
From moon to sea, to distant shore,
The tides behind you.
Gaia, your feet solidly rooted in soil.
And there you go, a streak of mercury,
A flash of light. Sure-footed,
You soar across the jet-black sky,
Toward who knows where?
And here I am on steady ground now,
Secure that you will safely land,
No matter the map that guides you,
No matter the sting of rain against your face
As you move so swiftly passed my door.
