Leaving it all behind was going to be hard

Everyone knew her name, her story

Giving up everything to save their nation and their world

Eventually losing her left eye and arm in the dragon’s fire

Now she quietly sits in the town square every day and enjoys what sun there is

Determined to let her legacy pass into myth and…

Farmer (an acrostic poem)

Focusing on giving to the earth

Allowing one to receive many fold more in return

Relying on the rhythms of the weather

Memorizing the song of rain and sun, growth and decay

Everything a relationship with the soil and the sky

Results in a labor of love

Watching the sun make its escape as it sinks beneath the horizon

Everything becomes more magical in that twilight moment

Snippets and whispers of other realms peek from beyond the veil

That opportunity sets as darkness brings down the curtain

More sun, more ants., more fire  More sun, more ants, more fire!”

For real?  How do you know?”

You look up close.  They’re still suffering from the epic heartburn”

Copious clownfish crowded the reef

Organized chaos of shifting schooling patterns

Racing along the bright bony protrusions

As the sun lazily drifted down through the water

Lighting a piece of aquatic perfection

Leap (an acrostic poem)

 

Leave the ground with gusto and take to the air

Eclipse the sun for those still stuck on the ground

Ascend to heights you never guessed you could reach

Peak and resist coming back down
