She Who Watches, Waits

She who watches, waits upon the dreaming rock and drinks the panorama cast before; she who waits, watches for the setting sun and ponders at the well of night forever more. Guardian of the soil and air, the fire hearth and waters quilted upon the earth; sister to the moon and stars, solemn in maternity for beloved lost in birth. Mother of the children ghosts who tramp the green fields orphan cursed, decreed alone; her silence calls them unto her so she may harvest in their souls and bring them home. She who waits, watches for the surrogates to rise instead of those she was denied; she who watches, waits for all who lose their way, a haven until judgement day to shelter and abide.
