Guardian


I was led through the mist. On either side of me the trees were shadowed figures in the blue-white haze. The song of crickets and the quiet buzz of various insects were the only sounds; even our footfalls on the shimmering path were silenced in the air. The diamond road stretched before me, the breeze brushed it’s hand against my cheek. I could not see where we were going; I could not see my guide. I did not need to see, I knew who she was. She was the one who answered as I called…

We took an earthen path leading off the main road. It led to a small pool fed by a spring above. All around us moonflowers shined bright from their own inner light. My guide turned to me and lowered her hood. I stood in awe of the woman before me. Her hair shimmered like fire, in her eyes were flames. Her perfectly smooth skin was pale. At her breast there hung a pendent of blazing white fire. Power radiated from that flame, love flowed from her outstretched hands and protection was in her embrace. When she spoke her voice was music and the night took up her song. I don’t remember what she said to me, I only know I will never be alone. She is always there, watching over me.

About Kat Reed

I am many things: a wife, a mother, an employee, and a student (CSUB). I write as a hobby and dream of owning a small bookstore with a selection of rare collectible books I will never have the heart to sell, shelves of new and used books, big comfy chairs so my patrons can relax with a cup of coffee or hot tea from the small coffee bar... in the window will be a sign that reads: "The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books" - H.W. Longfellow. Until then, I will continue to write and dream.... View all posts by Kat Reed
