Treasure Box

851382-golden-water-textureThe muse of lost treasure

Bestowed upon me

Her necklace.

Silver and gold

Iron and copper

(star boned)


To have and to hold

her light was bright

white diamond danger

(I open the chest to see her legacy)

dangerous to know

(golden tresses and jeweled robes)


remember me


(I tip my head, left ear open to the voice)

above me. Diamond star wombed

white light shines down upon me

opening the box

brave one


to unlock the portal

of remembrance

to the all

(star bones)


the voice of the womb star

echoes the grandmothers’, deep in the earth

starmothers wait watching for

the granddaughter

to open galactic trousseau.
