I took the title for my entry to Martha’s A-Z Photo Challenge from ‘The Winter’s tale’ by W. Shakespeare.
The photograph is a feather representing a quill.
The photograph and song represent ‘Q’. ‘Bonded’ to each other yet stand alone.
Let my words waltz as light as a feather,
To a musical autumnal breeze,
Partnered with golden leaves falling from trees,
And rejoice in the lively weather.
My pen seductively plays on the page,
Drawing pictures by ancient rules,
My chaotic thoughts it simply schools,
Like an actress on life’s open stage.
Let my words fly as if from a quill,
That knows to guide away from turbulent air,
With that inborn instinct I would share,
And rise up from a fair green hill,
Singing songs of home to hovering clouds,
The forest gives a safe haven for me,
At nightfall my shy songs are set free
Revealing light hidden by shadow’s shrouds.
