Blue and green feathers sparkle, like silver or gold in the sun. The delicacy of a young bird, conceals the strength of bones, that bend like moist twigs.
Black eyes stare at me. I disappear into their abyss, where the universe is recreated, in the rebirth of stars and planets. My wings carry me further than that, and I inhale the sweet scent of love, burning like fire in my heart.
Unbreakable in my fragility, strength is always an illusion, that bends in the stormy winds, and breaks on sweet summer days – the unpredictability of life, is like tiny star explosions, always leading to something new.
Merging together, from two different worlds, the peacock has to lose her feathers, and the stars will have to forget, their ability to break in silence.
The wind rushes through the trees, like an orchestra playing three nocturnes, creating the perfect setting for fireflies, to dance to this sweet melody of Chopin. The stars find their places in the dark sky, and I wait for Orion’s belt to appear, so I can see him shoot his arrow. Nothing is more peaceful than the night, where silence is a warm blanket, where you can meditate on the essence of life. My rocking chair calmly swings back and forth, as I play non-existent notes on my guitar, giving my thoughts a way to escape my mind, and slip into the oblivion of this peaceful night. God speaks when the world is silent, so I listen to the voice of Spirit who speaks, on the whisper of the cool midnight wind. If I would close one of my eyes and sleep, I would miss all the wonderful things, nature has in store for me, so I try to stay awake and listen carefully. All I can hear is the sweet sound of love, penetrating my flesh, taking over my soul, bringing me the peace, I have been looking for. It is her desire to bring me joy in the morning, so I thank the night for Chopin and his music, for Orion’s belt and his arrows coloring the sky, and the gift of love I found in this peaceful moment. As the dawn arrives in her colorful glory, I pray that the peace of this night will remain, during every minute of this brand new day!
