Dream Catcher – Heather Mirassou

So alone in a cage

She rolls and rolls

Into a safety net

Into a cloak

 

Her dream catcher

Begins to unravel

Her sheath

Her cacoon

 

It is not sudden

It has taken

A lifetime

Her net undone

 

The butterfly

Confused

Flutters

Lost from home

 

She no longer

Fights or spins

On a string

She opens her wings

 

She free falls

Blind and courageous

Caught by a warrior

Finally free

 

 

 

 

Take Me Home – Heather Mirassou

Take me home mama

To a place I once belonged

Hold my hand steady

And sing to me a song

My face filled with tears

All my family is gone

Take me home mama

To a place I once belonged

Under the grapevine canopy

You taught me to be strong

The hundred year-old oak tree

Dances until dawn

Take me home mama

To a place I once belonged

Moonshine Wind Song – Heather Mirassou

Barefoot and dirt-clod
I tip-toe across the yard
Avoiding mounds of stickers
Sharp rocks and weeds

The sky is full
Satin filled milk fluff
Moonshine
Full on me

Our tangerine trees
Rustle with low-lying
Bullfrogs
Ribbit, ribbit

A symphony of crickets sings
High pitched Beetle mania
I hear a distant “moo” from the cows
A latent “who” from the owls in the barn

The statuesque wind chimes
Is playing a cacophony of wind song
This life here engulfs me in it’s pure and rare beauty
I am one with the country, home again
