A chapter in the book Word Games


by estory

Imagine sunflowers opening,
Beginning to dream
Of light:
Seeds of the stars,
Roots in the sky,
Aurora on the longest night.

Illume. Illumine. Illuminate
A dance of light,
Until you have stamped the puddles out.

Press your face against the windowpane
And dream you are goose
Flying north to Great Bear Lake,
To days where the sun never sets.


This is a simple poem about optimism, about hope. The central image is light, and I wanted to make it obtuse enough, abstract enough, for anyone to relate to. We all have those days, those rainy days, where we sit inside moping. Look out of the window at the light, let your spirit take flight. estory
