Inertia

She stood in the fading sunlight

The leaves murmured, the birds hopped,

The marshy land washed her smell

The passing wind blew away her tail.

She stood in the fading sunlight

 

Awaken by her thoughts now and then

She stole a glance,

Driven to a land of fantasy

She made her stance.

She stood in the fading sunlight

 

She questioned her existence

The vulnerability in her arose,

All her dreams seemed to be fading away,

Even in her subconscious doze

She stood in the fading sunlight

 

Shaken by the plopping sounds

She held her aside,

His enlivened frame drew to her near

In the pale and vague shadow of her fear.

She stood in the fading sunlight

 

Stolen in his arms, deep in his breath ,She sighed;

Her broken arm hung to its place,

He took it with utmost care

As she smiled a bit less.

She stood in the fading sunlight.

 

His eyeless eyes looked into hers, her mind yearned for saying,

"I am nearly finished"

But her soul ,still dreaming looked longingly at the canvas,

They smiled ,as the dusk fell upon the Magnus.

They grasped the brush and painted together

As purity of the soul is the greatest treasure.

She stood in the fading sunlight...
