Bella Donna

Bella Donna
Follow me in my shadows
Watch me from the edges of moments
See me through the longing and the fear
Should they appear
Draw me near…remind me, guide me
Find me as I lightly test my foothold
Through two days
Late Monday to Wednesday afternoon
I’ll be home soon
North to Montserrat, still it quiets not
The span of a week
Is it true of the meek in their sacred dance
Inheritance and circumstance
Gilded plants echo past as
Public gardens asked in pardon
Unguarded and pure the water
To soothe the daughter for a few days
To alleviate
The ache for grace…damning time and space
In this ancient place where they call my name
I am no longer the same
And with diaphanous shame
I push back my need to run from them
Back to him and to home…48 hours to go, give or take
And not forsake once fine winter’s long
Bella Donna…carry my song for me
Breathe it into my heartbeat
Tenderly by thy captive dream
Fascinated and free
Spellbound
Keep it safe and sound
Until I am homebound
Sixteen Twenty-Two…pas de deux
To my rescue…to my truth
Until our descent into wonderment
And my soul’s content
As grateful eyes well with tears of love
High above my Emerald City

“You are in love with
..and I’m ready to sail
..it’s just a feeling”

-Stevie Nicks, “Bella Donna” (1981)
