On Two by Maria Beck

"Power of Love" - Maria Beck

Maria Beck

“Power to Love”

A christening

A sleeping Beauty

Waits another century

Her hair grows and the birds comb and wash it

Her fingernails grow and the butterfliers snip and polish them

They too are waiting for Prince Charming.

Maria Beck

“Age of Innocence”

A new age – trapped in a glass globe

She’s kept

First unknowingly

To keep her innocent

Flowy, white wisps have kept her dancing,

Like lights of fireflies its held by butterflies

And a few have made their way inside

To help her forget and forget again her own imprisonment.
