Andromeda

I long to go home to a place I do not even know…

Where the towering cliffs meet the azure blue seas...

Tall trees of thick jungle cover the land for miles…

Roaring seas meet white shores on land…

This is my home.

Can you take me there?

Where we cliff dove backwards, and flew upwards on the winds...carrying us to dizzying heights as we soared in the skies…like we were infinite beings...Never more alive...

Where the suns shone on us all day, and the stars lit up the night sky…like millions of bright fireflies...

The moons would bathe us in their luscious milky glow, as we howled into the night…

I wish I could remember where I lost you in all our wanderings of our sea covered home…somewhere amongst the clouds, where we flew like eagles in the sky...

Later on, craft filled the horizon of all those that shared this home, galaxies away…

Wild flowers covered the grounds - purples, pinks, deep reds you’d bring for me to put in my hair…

We were Kings and Queens of the Sky...

All the exquisite creatures…majestic leopards with wings flying through the trees, great huge butterflies twirling in the skies, hawks with long sleek tails greeting me from the seas, and dolphins with single horns jumping and gliding over the horizon…

Wild dances circling around bonfires, where we’d become one with the universal dance of creation, dancing ecstatically as the Gods and Goddesses flowed through as us...

Jumping off waterfalls and sailing downwards as gracefully as birds...

Caves lit with rainbow-coloured waters, and carvings of ancient deities watching over us from the cliff heights…the knowledge of eons stored here in the archives...

This is where we would grab the hanging ropes, and surf the seas to find our records…the ones that could tell us who we were, where we came from and where we were headed…such was the magic of the underwater caves, with still black waters covering all the secrets held inside…

So far away this place feels, yet here it is, right inside…

Take me home to where the blue seas touch the sky…

Where white shores stretch for miles…

Where I am you…and you are I.
