Imago Of The Seeker's Heart
Smooth edges fitted her palm, but for once she sought not the familiar reflection the mirror held. Usually she notched the stick as well, measuring her lacuna, the synchronicity of looking and marking offering meaning to the uncertainty of her new life.
Isolated for one moon after her capture in defense of any miasma she might have carried, her white soul had been starved to awaken her Indian soul. 'Seeks Her True Heart' was the name bequeathed her by the warrior who had pulled her from the raging river and taken her into his home. After many days of observing her ritual, he spoke.
“When you no longer need to look, you will finally see yourself.”
How long ago had that been?
The magnetism of his gaze attracted her attention, his eyes smiling even as his expression remained unchanged, and at last she understood. Oscitating in wolfish imitation, stretching his long, beautiful limbs beside her in the early dawn, he spoke to her for the first time in the tender way of a lover.
“Today you achieve your imago, for you do not seek yourself in the small glass, but see yourself in the reflection of my eyes.”
