I am a fading king
Waking up to morning dew
That crowns my branches
Dare I move in the afternoon breeze?
I am a foundation stone
Fathering all good moments
For critters that crowd
Dare I sing the morning song?
I am a flightless prince
Keeping all the misery
Of the earth in
Dare I recognize all that has been done?
I am a wooden lighthouse
Reading more than you can image
By day and by night
Dare I sway to the evening mist?
This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge found here at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was “willow, misery, silence”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Tune in tomorrow to see the new challenge for this week! Photo by jurien huggins on Unsplash.
