The Quest

The knight’s quest revealed nothing at first, but the dew before dawn had other plans.  Loyal as she was to the world, her gender sometimes was mysterious as she gazed at the spirit realm.  Romance was breathed to life here; it was where she spoke to her love outside of time.  Smitten- no! In love, she declared, though the sands of time did not hint about her askance.  It was okay.  The knight’s quest is one ginormous waiting game- until time reveals the treasure lying within one’s own human heart. The treasure is knowing that we are all beautiful and shining like the stars that rest on our skin.

I stand in honor,

Before my ancestors

begging to be picked,

to be plucked,

to be-

held,

floating with the stars.
