Scene4 Magazine: "Mark the Winds" | Griselda Steiner July 2011

Would that my mind could reach the sky
And mark the winds like the clouds
And my body span the sea
Touching the shores with the tides
And my pregnant shadow sift the sands of time
Where my child and I are one

If I could leave behind my human form
Filled with cycles of seasons and sorrow
I would return a healer of light
And lift the pain of life from all believers

But now
The sky has set winds to my sail
And the sea has entered my womb
And the sands into the hourglass of time

My form will become a vessel
The grail where spirit echoes
For those that hear
The Truth will thunder in the Sky

Griselda Steiner
