The Lady is a Witch

There she is.
See her walking along the cliffline? Gliding along the path of gossamer?
They say she is over a hundred years old.
What is her name? I do not know.
The villagers say that she prays. She had a son. He died in the war.
It doesn’t matter which war.

She takes long walks along the cliffs. Spray and mist assail her.
Her thoughts are as the wind that whispers so soft and gentle.
Her SELF died when her progeny died.
I don’t know if she’s happy. I’m afraid to ask.
They say that she is a witch. I think she’s a good witch.
They say she had the whole world once.
But one day, God took it all away.
He wasn’t cruel, though. He took her mother, father and sister. They rest now.
He took her money, her status, her health, her dignity, her pride.
Now she walks alone. She owns nothing now.

I don’t know how she survives. She seems content.
She’s lovely, really. They say she was arrogant a long time ago. She’s humble now.
I suppose the good life is just a faint memory to her. I wonder if she misses it.
I wonder if God loves her.
I wonder if He will allow her into his kingdom.

Goodbye Lady Witch.

Thanks for dropping by my site. I see that you are a poet. I assume the language of Guam is spanish. How is it that you speak Enlish so well?

I like your site, your insights, and your visions. I am an artist and poet, but I've limited my blogging thus far to prose with an underlying musical theme weaving through the tapestry of my posts. I've not decided yet whether to post any of my poetry. I probably will, in time. This is an interesting poem on many levels. You mentioned "good witch." Stop by my blog and see where I am from in my profile. Ironic, huh? ;)
