The Hidden Places

La Regina del Mondo Nascosto

Above there is only endless sky and the hand holding the staff of power must not tremble
for in the veiled places the Empress must walk within her full and uncovered might
the Guardians keep their mystifications locked and unforgiving
and the echoing chamber left open to the gaze of the stars
can quickly become a tessellate tomb
Yet there is wildness in her blood and potent magic shimmers in her skin
tangles in her hair
and her eyes look deeper and do not blink
there is steel in her spine and the will
the right
is undeniably hers
Above there is only endless sky and the hand holding the staff of power tightens
even while her voice gentles
as she calls forth the vision 
which brought her here
just one word spoken into the listening stillness
and the very stones hold their breath as the universe gathers itself to answer…..

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?

    one year ago…..I had thoughts that this may become part of a series. Any opinions? Yea or Nay?
