Her Light Eternal

Her Light Eternal
Fabrice Poussin

She shivered beneath the budding frame
Terrified of those many years to dawn
Pen in hand her gaze lost into a dark void
Horizons too distant to take a chance.

The flesh tepid under her massive yoke
She may have been a cripple in those twenties
Yet a glow, weak as it seemed near extinction
Showed the way to an uncertain fate.

Hazy humanoid shapes form upon the night
Afoot as ghosts in an eerie procession of hopes
A gentle reflection outlining timid souls
Maybe the spark to jumpstart another birth.

Aflame in the thickness of the frigid cosmos
She may vanish into an infinite realm
Yet her beacon will to burn in the spirits
Of all who believe thus forevermore.
