Summer Court

Composed 4/14/16
Description: The seasons bring dramatic change to every day things. For Day 15 of NaPoWriMo.

A green hill next to a sidewalk

The hill was once infested
With the purple vines of a witch’s curse
Now summer fairies bless it
And green springs from the earth


Change of Seasons

Composed 4/1/15
Description: For Day 1 of NaPoWriMo! (It’s only a little late…)

I don’t know why I am
So scared to dream
In this warm and promising spring
Perhaps I’ve spent too much
Time in the dark
My heart has crystalized
A product of such a barren winter

Shielded and unable to feel
Even the sunlight does not feel real
I guess I’ve grown too used to the shade
I no longer shun its solitude
Didn’t I once love the sun?
Faced with spring’s sudden glare
I balk
