NaPoWriMo #5

To find out the lastest prompt go here.

This one snuck up on me because I started late and did not see the first prompt.  I tried creating my own word list, asked my sweetie, checked the web.  When I started to choose words I got this very silly rhythm in my head and could not shake it.  So here is something I think is weird  but it was  fun to write.  I really have no idea where this came from.

The forest he enters

A crow, no bird, watching

So softly in silence

He walks to the plain

———

A river, a ribbon

The rushes stand over

A willow, resplendent

And waiting for rain

———-

A heron flies over

Some folded enchantment

And dips to the water

To stand in the cane

———-

The man bound for chaos

Would settle for comfort

So turns to the forest

His path to regain

(I had to put the lines in because I couldn’t get WordPress to double space between stanzas.)
