By the Long Count


By the long count, I’m just a starling alighting on a moment, flitting away on a spark of light, one downy feather drifting down in my wake.

I am star dust.

By the long count, I watch my life, my aging, through a whirling tunnel of focus, a worm hole warping my soul from one end to the other.

I am earth.

By the long count, I flow through life bright and dark, calamity to blessing, storm to pleasure to travail, rushing through moments uncounted.

I am water.

By the long count, we can be like the lilies of the field, beautiful in just being, toiling not, wanting not, but our arrested moments won’t let us.

I am ice.

By the long count, I do my penance and wait…

In a moment all our moments can drop away like that feather while our souls fly free into the endless light, skipping away on the sky, debating the weight of their value

I am the feather on Horus’s scale.

About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....
