Tell the Story

Everything Changed

Everything changed on that warm autumn eve,

Darkness hid behind a billion stars.

Iridescent streams pirouetted past,

The wind hummed like a thousand guitars.

Leaves tussled to mask their fragility,

Exposed by the penetrating beams,

Then consented with grace, and surrendered,

Nothing is quite as it seems.


The mystic haze whispered a warning cry,

To the hearts that would soon be converged,

Unaware of the loss that would be mourned,

When the beautiful woman emerged.

A part of my soul was lost on that night,

My sweet vixen, she had tears in her eyes,

In human form, she would forget us soon,

So in silence, we said our goodbyes.

—Janet

While I was off camping, msjadeli at Tao Talk tagged me to “Tell The Story” (or write a poem) about the image below. Everything Changed was my story.

My name is Janet, and I'm located in southern California. My blog is rather eclectic, featuring art, photography, and a little poetry, as well as short pieces of fiction (now and then). I also share about my walk of faith, and my journey through recovery from alcoholism.
