Helena Thiessen - Poetry

Lady of the North

She dances

Graceful arms she stretches high

Reaching up to touch the sky

Gingerly she steps around

Pieces breaking from the ground

And still

She dances

Fires raising deep within

Floods the land she knows as kin

Balancing on what is left

She does a twirl and though bereft

She dances

Watching her we sit in awe

Taking for granted all we saw

Even when we are long gone

In the skies, she’ll carry on

Forever dancing
