Please read and enjoy the work of talented writer.
“ I am not afraid. I was born to do this” – Jeanne d’Arc
My heart is built of ramparts;
my vision, an arrow piercing the air,
my bones, a scaffold for the city of me,
a city surrounded
Barely woman, broken soldier,
Warm hearth, divine spark.
An exile crossing a bridge between realms.
No place to lay my head.
Under the apple trees in my father’s garden
I found the truest I, the root
reflected in arch-angelic eyes.
The spire of Domrémy blessed
by light, illumined.
My mother held me before I left for Orléans.
In fields of wheat that swelled like tides
I waded into an ocean
far beyond the front lines.
Far beyond the gaze of her eyes.
I followed the white stag of the forest.
My standard raised to the wind like a sail.
The voice of my kin, became the rustling wind.
