Colours of Celestial States

In her fertile years
a woman is like the moon
mystical and revered
ever changing
sometimes blood-red
never quite sure who of she is
from one day to the next
powerful enough to exert tidal forces
yet locked within the gravitational pull of her obligations

During her perimenopause years
a woman is like the sun
full of golden fire
burning up what has become irrelevant
and with access to enough energy to take her stand
solar flares may disrupt communications
but her passion ignites the blossoming of creativity
everywhere she casts her glow

And in her menopause years
a woman is like a silvery star
dazzling as she dances in the night sky
a point of reference
to those seeking direction
she delights in knowing exactly who she is
sparkling in her seasoned femininity
witness of accumulated wonders
until she eventually transcends
to heavens beyond her wildest imaginings
