Had only just begun

Had only just begun

Strawberry full moon, is rising above,

Whilst Capricorn is blue, dreaming below,

Along the river she goes, seeking love.

Even though, she is already aglow.


She is her own light, ineffably bright,

Floating along, dreaming up words for him,

On this tropical, post yule winter night,

These words come bubbling up, from deep within.


He is never far from her thoughts these days,

Winter was when he was born, all too soon,

Unprepared she was, he set her ablaze,

Her love launched outward, from her lonely womb.


He was not to live a week, her dear son,

Her love for him, had only just begun.
