A fascination, a fierce pride, love of a lioness
To keep you safe and stand behind you as you shoulder a storm
To warm your boots and stoke the fires in your heart where truth is forged
Coax me out onto the shore, ill coax you deep into the sea.
Sparkle and swim, bubble and dive, sink and spin, meet the new dawn shining on the sand…
Hand me the ropes in a raging storm, trusting my strength to hold fast
Hold firm your gaze when my eyes burn with rage, grief, desire.
Fire and water, steaming embers, sheer icy rock faces, flowing rivers of molten ground, melding merging striking twisting surrender.
