Bluebonnet Sky

So you’ve been through the roaring fire
Leaving you maimed, a soul of charred ashes
But rising from this molten funeral pyre
Comes a new woman with scars on scars.

You must know though flawed, you are beautiful
for you shimmer with the light of fractured stars
and you’ve heard the haunting mystical song
of the grey mockingbird in pink light of dawn
His singing sets your broken heart free to soar–
Euphoria your guide, higher and brighter
while you dance with glee in a majestic bluebonnet sky.

  1. This poem, and the accompanying photo, lifted my heart, Linda. I love the whole idea of a bluebonnet sky!!!!!! As well as the woman shimmering with the light of fractured stars. Wonderfully written. If I was still doing Poem of the Week, this would be one of them! (In fact, if I recall, it may have been one in the past. Smiles.)
