Her face aged and
Weathered with time,
Shone with wisdom;
She has seen it all,
The rise and fall.

flowers_of_joy_400The towers and blocks
Men lead like flocks;
The burning machines,
The flying stones
Crunching bones,
Desolate thrones,
And the twirling minuets.

She has seen it all;
The rivers of blood
Like a biblical flood
Glowing on the plain
In the howling wind and rain.
Among cries and bloodied thighs,
The gnashing of the teeth
With heavy laden sighs.

The embers glowed,
The reflections dancing
In her eyes,shining filled
With the distilled wisdom
Of generations that rose and fell
Collecting like sediments in deep
Sea swells.

They will say,
'Who will weep?
For she died in her sleep'.
Her noble face aged and
Weathered with time,
She had seen it all,
The rise and fall.

All the wisdom of her age,
Distilled in this matriarchal sage.
