Poem of the Week / Selina Moses

Paula

Pale and fragile as a lily,

You lie on your bed like a Sleeping Beauty. Where are you wandering?

Ebony silken plait winding around your ivory shoulders

Enveloping the room in translucent shadows, unfathomable as the life in your eyes.

You lie on your bed like a Sleeping Beauty. Where are you wandering?

Flickers of hope surround you

Enveloping the room in translucent shadows, unfathomable as the life in your eyes.

Steadily your spirit sways to and fro to the tick of the clock.

Flickers of hope surround you

As this day ends and the next night takes over

Steadily your spirit sways to and fro to the tick of the clock.

Waiting to fly to be born on the other side.

As this day ends and the next night takes over

The whispers of the spirits help you, step by step to the end.

Waiting to fly to be born on the other side.

You have gone, your wandering is over.
