The Healer 🌹
She was a sinner with a plan to escape.
She discovered it by killing not one, two, three,
but four shadows as she dug up the mountain, climbing barefoot and bleeding,
shredded and starving and barely breathing.
Maybe they would see her coming,
falling from the stars, in or out of order, with her giant fans opening, just in time to slow her into grace. In time they might notice the bedrock gently rocking, their hearts burning for some kind of relief,
and understand it was she who gathered all her might so they could rest to the wave of the tip and the top of that peak more than grace; gracious; graceful...oh yo...oh yee up the sky
into blankness that waves with no worries on a perfectly blossomed point
in a light that doesn't even need to be seen.
