I am daughter

of moonlight over desert landscapes

of emptiness and endless expanses.

Too many trees stifle my soul,




Let me see long,

watch the far horizon,

listen to the wind.

I am daughter

of puma, of jaguar,

stealing through black night

under endless stars.




Let me wander distances

watchful, timeless.

I am daughter

of the ancients





all knowing.

Let me walk into the sunset

talk with gods.

I am daughter of the universe.

  1. Firstly, I would like to say this poem is amazing. I choose it to analysis for a paper I am writing and I thought it would be free flowing because of how much I enjoyed it but I am stuck. I know it is not any of your concern but if you had any insider tips I would appreciate them.

  2. Is it the one with only 5 lines?? I wrote the three at different times. It relates, well all three do, to my sense of women and mystery and the power of women to be beyond the patriarchy, to defy norms, to be free to be who they are.

    Does this help?
