THE APOCALYPSE – A POEM

THE APOCALYPSE – A POEM

The sky is ashen pink from the bushfires south,
lightning strikes, thunder growls, the fruit-bats fly out.

I think of the preacher’s mouth, telling us in the
End Times the sky would turn red and the sun would
dip into the earth and the heavens would strike barren
ground, desert storms, red, red, red gathering and circling.

Jesus would descend to gather his sacred flock,
fertile plains, of manna and green, of golden horses,
chariots and streams. Will he come and take me?

I watch the sky scarleting, blood moon.
The superstitions haven’t left. In the End Times I
never thought of floods—always drought.

This air so dry, brittle, cough cure; my lungs burn to inhale.
That lightning striking the ridge so real. Baptismal fires,
exsufflation sound. Mother Earth wanting to weep but only
parched lips finding cracked earth. Only sad eyes seeing mirage.

About this poem:

It’s funny how much your childhood still comes back to haunt you. I left the church at 15, but the religious-spiritual-superstitious brainwashing lingers.

We will all make our way down that corridor into white light where time stands still, death our guide. If you harbour any doubt your body won’t fall to ash—dispel it. Your mortal body will surely turn and pale.

They say eventually we’re all drawn back to the place of our birth. We must follow the bloodline. It leads to the gold centre of the heart.

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

Incarnation, when your soul takes flight, high over the cosmic sky, blue, black, sometimes indigo, the heavens hold you until you enter the womb.

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

If there were but a thing called time, I’d stretch it out like a long rope; I’d thread it through all my past lives, watch all my human drama on display, me, me, in many different forms.

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

I lie in bed, unwell, unable to move my body or head. Paralysed, dependent, like a newborn, or the very old. My husband hovers. I feel sorry for him; a wife that’s become a sack of wheat.

How I came to suffering blindly, choking, lungs filled with dirt—red hair, red dress, and shoes, skin the colour of thick cream, she stamps her tiny feet up on the mound that will be my grave, and the earth shudders.

What if I told you you didn’t truly love me, but her. The one who visits when you sleep, wrapping you in her blue arms, telling you she is the anima; the soulstar lover—the one whose light mirrors yours without reflection.


Love—the centrepiece, the missing piece of our life puzzle; bright, beautiful star, in pieces …


Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

If fire is my destiny, and we’re to dance for life, how do I grasp the passion end of the straw, and leave pain hanging?


In the tradition of women in my heritage, I did all I could to hide—Red hair dyed black, green eyes dulled, mouth pursed, cheeks pinched, balled fists turning to bruise.


Stretch your face towards the wind, and feel it making love to your face, lips, cheeks, chin—


In the flicker of an eyelid, life on Earth will be over and you’ll take your last breath inside your beautiful body that housed and held you for this incarnation.
