Awakening in Twilight

Her years passing time,
an awakening in twilight transformed,
beholding the silver landscape anew,
examining the dwindling hours.

It was a reimagined future,
where starting was starting in furthermore,
watching the despondent around her
chase a daybreak they wouldn't catch.

She wondered at her metamorphosis,
emerging from the ghostly crowd,
more apparitions fading each day,
while she turned on the light.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
