Her Sun

©Keith David 2010 ©Virginia Alison 2010

 

V….she no longer looks to the sun. The love of her soul is a mere whisper in her dreams. ‘Why do you leave me again’ her spirit cries through the mountains but her voice is lost to the four winds, whilst her heart, now weary, lies shattered in the remnants of a body that has been forsaken, she finds no solace in hope, merely tears in pain…

 

K… and darkness surrounds as she lay sobbing in the tall grass. Clouds hide the moon and stars and she feels totally alone in the haunting black stillness, yearning for her lover to come to her once more. Grass, trees, flowers, birds, mice, and frogs weep with her, beckoning for him to return and mend her heart, to bring the sun again to them....

 

V...to light the way. Her body, shattered, lies bleeding in the dark, whilst the dream catcher waits for the shadows that no longer flee with the morning light. The shadows that weave their web into her conscious spiral her down to despair. How much more must she endure, how much more must she suffer, has love deserted her to the end of days? Her eagle soaring above weeps but she finds no solace.....

 

K…in his tears. The universe around her seems to throb in her misery, willing her broken heart back together. A screech from her spirit guide above roars loader than heavens thunder, echoing off the canyon walls and startles her being as the force of his voice draws a gasp from her breath. He has given something, yet she does not recognise it...

 

V...as coming from his soul, it is weary, it is sad, and as her heart pounds inside her chest, the life force drains from her face. "Can it be?" She cries, and the tears flow down her satin skin onto the green grass. She is no longer able to stem the flow of dark days as they pour from her shuddering body. The screech comes again, and the earth below her trembles with the sound. Her spirit rises from the grave of her tear-wracked shell and searches for...

 

K…anything to ease her pain, and mend her torn soul in her black, empty world. Rising upon weak knees, she trembles and falters. Falling back into the grass, she is too weak to weep and lies still in the tall grass as she feels life slowly slipping away. Once more, the screech shakes the earth beneath her, echoing like a shot into her soul and reverberating again and again. The energy of the sound fills her body and provides a moment of clarity and a vision of…

 

V...days to come. The strength oozes into her weary bones and again she rises to face the coming of the dawn. Drawing her energy from the trees as they whisper in the wind, which flows through the dew laden leaves, she hears their voices in her head. The sounds flow through the eternal darkness, and pinprick light flashes through her, awakening the cells of her demise. Again, the mountains reverberate with the sound of her eagle spirit, she knows now she is not alone and awaits...

 

K…the energy to fight back the darkness. Upon their last flight, when her spirit soared high, he took a tiny piece of her beauty and light for safekeeping. Knowing she would need it along her path of darkness, he nurtured it and allowed it to grow within him. With each call of his mighty voice, each echo through the mountains, this energy returns. Every tree, flower, and blade of grass reflects the splendour and illumination to her soul as blackness turns slowly to gray and the path before her…

 

V...brings a fresh wave of hope. As she fully opens her eyes, she sees it. The sign she has awaited for so long, dances on the wind, and floats through the breeze. The small white feather twists and turns until it gently rests on her outstretched hand, curling itself around her finger like the ring of love that he pressed upon her many moons ago. Her heart pounds in her breast as...

 

K…clouds slowly part. Grays turn to greens, reds and yellows as the life force returns. Unsure if she hears it in her mind or ears, another screech of sweetness and love sings through her body and an instantaneous shiver of delight through her being. Rays of pure, brilliant light filter through the parting clouds and illuminate the cold mist as they slowly warm her cold heart and shine on the path ahead. Glancing again to her finger, the white feather has turned to gold and it catches a shaft of light from the sky, reflecting it on her face….

 

V...the Sun God's strength brings a new dawn for the earth. Could this day bring the long awaited comfort to her soul, the reason for her to continue on this mortal coil? Her distant love had spoken in her direst need and since time immemorial just as the Golden star kindles hope in all life when it rises from the ink of night, bringing heat to scorch away the mist of the dawn, so the sweet song of love brings hope to her dark existence and her body begins to...

 

K…flourish in light. Beauty returns to her eyes as a stunning glow of pink and amber emerges on the horizon. His arms envelop her body and soul in radiant splendour, professing his love and longing directly to her heart. Tickling her spirit, Joy and Hope appear and she rides upon the wings of her spirit guide. Soaring gracefully…

 

 

V-...upwards from the valley floor. Past the torrents, flowing down the ravines on their way to the ocean, and upwards over the mountain tips where it seems the grey granite erupts in a white flow of lava from the cold winter snow. Up towards the fine strata of amber wisps moving on the wind, circling the earth with their ethereal splendour, and her heart sings as she dances on the wind in the.......

 

K…heavens, high about the clouds. Soaring far above the brilliant blue, green orb swirling with cotton white clouds, the sun at their back and the moon beckoning them onward, her spirit becomes one with his and for this moment there is only one. Radiant, glowing beauty surrounds and emanate forth as pure love beams from every pore. Lifting still higher as the stars come alive, twinkling against the unending space before them, all pain, fear, and hate is gone. Her energy restored, renewed, she…

 

V...takes his heart to her own as their souls merge. The universe has her way, Mother Earth sighs, and her children have taken their final journey. It is as it always was, the continuation of life will be hers in the throes of their lover’s sonata, the culmination of her toils as earth elements join to sow the seed, which will glorify the Spring Solstice. Their bodies returning to the soil from whence they came, and as the maelstrom gathers in the heavens, their ecstasy limitless in its power as the earth awaits its fate. The volcano erupts between them culminating in an orb of angelic florescent light that spirals downwards. The shooting star lights the heavens, in its core, the seed of life tumbling towards a new future, the future of the chosen ones who will continue the lovers dance. As it hits the deep blue atmosphere, it splits, each seeking the newborn souls, whose destiny will be to spend eternity wandering the earth, lost, and seeking solace on the winds of time. The whimpers of the babes echo through the winds, their souls crying out for each other as their spirit guides soar above the mountains and in that split second the lovers become one of the countless stars. As the earth continues its rotation, so the journey starts again...
