Her head was bowed,
in prayer, I guessed.
When the lightning struck her frame.
Her arms fell limp, and her eyes widened,
and the day stood still. Like a Polaroid.
We were Printed.
in a splash of broken fragments
that could, nor should ever be undone.
We share hues, of blues,
and degrees, of greens, and
we paint in black and white.
We bleed bright red, and we forget the rest.
Most importantly, we know.
So we glow when we need to. We show
when we need to.
We share when we have to, and we breathe
when we remember to. We love
because we want to.
The Lightning Opal: Black Opal is considered to be extremely lucky and the most uplifting of the Opals, bringing Light into the aura. It eases distress and dissolves depression and hopelessness, helping one face their darkest fears and to release that which is holding one back. Linking the Root and Crown Chakras, Black Opal connects one’s highest spiritual aspirations with one’s physical body, making it a powerful magnifier of intention and manifestation. It is a protective stone for deep inner work, soul retrieval or past-life recall, and can be used for “gazing” into the past, present or future. It is highly prized as a power stone for magic ritual and can be used for “reading eyes” in order to scry the truthfulness or intent of a person. Black Opal is a Storm element stone of death and re-birth, and utilizes Fire energy.
