Tasha's Eyes

written by: Natalia Aeschliman

@NataliaAeschlim

 

Early morning
I look in the mirror
Dark circles under my once young eyes
Tired skin
Yet such a beautiful sight
Sun kissed by the afternoon light
"There's still life inside"
I whisper to myself
As if I was a mischievous child
Radiant
Energetic
Fountain of youth
I sip my morning coffee
step outside
Looking at the glorious gift
Of nature herself
I begin to think of her struggles
Her defeats, her glories
Nature,
Who's as old as time
And a minute older
Yet she stands strong
She blooms in her perfection
With gray skies
she pours her tears
Back into earth
Turning them into beautiful gardens
I am her
I am nature
Yearning, seeking
Filling my soul with endless dreams
I rise above my own doubt
And at that moment
That particular moment
I am beautiful
I lift my arms
And feel the love
Of the trees
Of the stream
Of the earth below me
I am who I need to be
The anonymous goddess
I am me.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

This poem was inspired by a very good friend of mine with a soul filled with wanderlust, hope and strength. This one is for you, my dear Tasha.

My name is Natalia, I was born in Puerto Rico. I live a very simple life with my husband and 2 beautiful kids.
I keep my heart humble, and my words beautifully vulnerable.
I write because it is in my soul.
I write because I don't know how to live without it.
There's something beautiful that only poetry can create in your soul.
