Ascension to Queendom

A poem by Jessica Lentz.

On this clear October morning

The Sky and the Sea are kissing,

The blue of distance is stretching vastly

Like a sleepy cat.

Light-footed, she walks over the lake

Defying the rules known to man

Zwischen Immer und Nie

She floats, each step a song of revolution.

She ascends into the air on the staircase

Crafted out of her sisters’ voices

And as the clouds open onto the Queendom

She hears Eve’s hearty laugh and knows 

She’s arrived.
