Day Eighteen - #WoPoWriMo - A Woodland Tale


That hole in the sky, will close some day,
some wholly inconvenient
way, as we wander
on a woodland path;

one that winds as dragons pass,
and cry fire
into morning air; one that leads
to everywhere, and nowhere
all at once,

with a toll gate that charges
in fingers
and thumbs and a cow
that jumps over the moon – we will have
our fairytale,

and you,
if the story
takes the rest of our time,
every sweet on the candy-trail
was laid to find, and light
our merry walk,

and we will stop
and savour them all, we have forever
to talk.
