And when I finally knew that
I would never have another lover
I looked inside and embraced my shadow,
holding it, cherishing the power hidden in
its murky depths.

And when I finally knew that
I could change the landscape of my life
I stood with steady feet on that stone sill
and looked with witch’s eyes across the plain
and, grasping broom, flew.
