A STATUE IN LOVE WITH THE NIGHT...


The statue had been wandering around the garden all night
She was a curious woman
Willing to unfold the many secrecies of darkness
She heard the whispering of the shadows
Witnessed the eyes of the moon
Flirting with the calm waters of the pond
 
The obscurity of things and beings
Fascinated her
She romanticized everything
The world she created in her mind
Was made of many colors
And many souls
 
At daylight
She was attentive to people
Found interest in so many blends of personalities
Proud for having always the biggest audience
She liked the way the mortals looked at her
Trying to unveil her mysteries
And admiring the voluptuous curves of her perfect
Shaped body
 
The birds were her constant companions
They used to sing for her all day
Some wanted to build little nests
In the corners of her folded arms
To create a bond with her many beauties

She liked to have butterflies
Decorating her hair
The bees feeding her lips with honey
And the rain refreshing her china skin
During the flaming summer seasons
The blue sky and the green earth used to reverence her
Impressed they always were by her undeniable magnetism
 
During the night she could brake
The chains with her paralysis
Running as free as a gracious gazelle
She simply could not resist to embrace
Lives beyond her own
She wanted to learn about other dimensions
She wanted to discover the backstage of life
The invisible forces
Mystical creatures
The voices of silence
 
After the long nomadic nights
She went back to the garden she lived
And fell asleep
While contemplating herself
In the mirror of the fountain silver waters
Tired she was
 But fulfilled with
Countless magic memories
Of her many travels
Across the vivacious paths
Of the witching hours...
