Decisions…

Daenerys Stormborn

Daenerys Stormborn

she, decided that today
would be the day
that the mountains bowed

she, just as powerful
as the force that drags the snow
down from their rumpled beards

she, who would reach out her hands
and mold her world
like a child’s lump of clay
carving deep valleys
in the golden sunlight
filled with Crepe Myrtle and Pines
and the sweet singing sounds
of life, and joy and the happiness
of a heart, unshackled from the pain
of unknowing

she, was a rare and beautiful snowflake
who basked in the glory of the midday sun
and refused to melt

 

*this was inspired by a twitter prompt that is run by Sarah Brentyn

Sarah is a wonderful writer and a dear friend… i sent this to her over twitter and told her, “look what you did” She said she loved it. Please visit her blog if you have the time.

Also, Long Live Daenerys Stormborn!

    You had me here:

    “drags the snow
    down from their rumpled beards

    she, who would reach out her hands
    and mold her world
    like a child’s lump of clay”

      • thefeatheredsleep says:

        If it’s even in the realm of the last one then all dragon and GoT fans shall unite. Do Daeneres proud!

  16. Aw…thanks for the mention and so thrilled to be even a tiny part of inspiring this magnificent piece. Hey, so when I said how much I loved this, I had NO idea it was inspired by GoT. And…I’ve never seen it. (I know.) What’s funny is I took one of those silly online quizzes and it said I was this character. Enough rambling. You may delete all this and keep the following:

    OMGs! I absolutely LOVE this. Love. Fangirling over this one. *swoon*
