Beautiful Force of Nature

She was beautiful, but in a different sort of way.

A sort of way that made the ground tremble before her.
The oceans part when she tells them to,
the sky breaks open when she yells.

When she smiles the world smiles too,
releasing a rainbow and sun rays.
When her boots touch the ground worms make their way up
to the surface to try to get a glimpse of her.
Birds follow her, trying to get her to sing their song.
Deer find themselves mesmerized, not unlike being caught
in the blinding light of the sun.

She was beautiful, people say.
But people don't often see all there is.
She was beautiful, they were right about that.
But she was something else, too. Something stronger.

She was a force of nature.
