I Gazed Upon The Horizon

I gazed upon the horizon
Down below with rocks plastered with barnacles 
Stubbornly clanging on its superior mother
I saw clashing waves pondering in their youth
On their twisted arms played childish acts
Slowly I move my gaze up
On a rock where a lady stood upon
Her eyes 
Her cerulean eyes that longed for calming meet
Her body silhouetted with her ivory flowing gown
Spun by her people with detailed lines 
Reflecting her youth, her beauty in every yonder
The greatest of all is her stance
Uncompared by any other being
Gracefully tip toed around the soaked scented rocks
She soars above and below
Pacify all the inferior and folly
She took her first step
Her right arm raised high up through the clouds
Conjuring great power and assurance
Pouring fellow jolly and bliss to all her people
Her left arm twirl around her waist
Trailing behind cheerful bunnies
They would hop and roll
Rock and bow
Their incessant behavior showered grains of hope and faith
No worries no calamities paced
Her left foot kicked like bands of treble
Rolling down their sleeves
Making love to music
And here comes forth melody
Inspiring her children to grow and mate
Making solemn promises of faith
And  her right foot stands alone
Into a void where darkness reigns
It is a pillar on its own
Piling her recorded past
Filling her emptiness with precious velvet hearts
Her stance is righteous to all
That glides in the center of the horizon
To the core of my heart
As a blessing whose gift is to give
To love and to cherish
The moments in every day 
In any time
