Enigma by Zora Cross

| No TrackBacks
My body is a flower, a leaf of light
The good white day once gave the happy night;
A gracious melody the years still chime,
Scented with all the woman-bloom of Time.

And yet I am the mother of all things
Drifting and floating on the earth's green wings;
I give to God child-worlds of mist and star
Because my love dreams all the things that are.
