Wings of Morning
She drifts up like a pure spirit, seawater dripping from her slender white feathers. Her silver eyes glisten with starlight and bittersweet tears.
It is only when she comes to me, white as a dove, that I feel peace in the empty sky. The vast web of night is cold without her, but when I see her rising from the land to greet me, I live again.
Her smile dances through me as she comes to rest in my arms. Hair as black as doves’ eyes brushes against my neck.
And she sighs, ah, my star Eärendil, you are home.
