light bearers

the skies bled crimson    
as the fires raged out of control    
the day was angry    
watching her beloved redwoods burn down  
while her children were dying    
she was grieving    
and the winds blew    
fanning the inferno    
that threatens Yosemite    
the day conjured rain clouds    
none came    
her magic was pure    
but the gods denied her relief    
she was tempted to throw down the sun    
and commit suicide    
immortal death    
but she refused to succumb to this feeling    
because while considering this final act    
she could see her children on the horizon    
walking towards her    
ready to be reborn into the world    
so she looked to the heavens    
and with a mighty warrior cry    
she lay claim to the Earth    
saying this far will you go    
and no further    
then she kissed her little ones on the foreheads    
sending them back into the world    
they are to be light bearers    
stars that show the way
