She slept in the field, the grassy plains

Hair blazing around her head like a dark flame 

The stars sheltered her; protectors of night

Pinpoints through darkness, they upheld the light


The wildflowers grew around her

Through her hair and above her head

Beautiful tiny buds; the first signs of life


Growth threaded through flowing black locks

Like divers through inky seas

As the canopy of flowers formed for her

A new sky
