Writing Sample: Mystic

This is a poem that originally appeared in my short story collection, “By The Ounce.” The second edition of that collection is available on Amazon. Pick up a copy, will ya?

 

Mystic

 

Miles beyond the lush forest

Lies a lake enchanted

It has been written that those who wade

Will be granted eternal youth

 

Miles beneath the earth

Sits a cave forgotten

It has been written that those who venture

Will encounter good fortune

 

Miles beyond the furthest star

Stands another world empowered

It has been written that those who survive

Will have the power to see the truth

 

Miles into the great desert

Is an even greater oasis

It has been written that those who arrive

Will be gifted the passion of a thousand suns.

 

Inches from the valley

Sleeps a mystic elderly

It has been said those who brave his stories

Will be eager to share their own
