A teardrop falls

Ripples racing across a pond

Echoing through eternity

As a butterfly flaps its wings

A hummingbird flies by

It’s wings blurring the lines

Between fantasy and reality

Dancing between unicorns without horns

Still I sit

Beneath the elder tree

Leaves weeping around me

Roots holding together Time

White dragons twine around the sky

Growling and snapping, flashing bright

While raindrops join the tears

Transported away to other worlds

Knights to slay the demons

That stalk the shadows

But still I sit under the elder tree

Safe within its hold
