Season of Change
Our season of change
will reach its apex as it starts
beneath a beacon of safe harbor,
yet continue, our path
dancing on the edge of
the coming eclipse,
in the light
we bring to each other.
Today is Day 3 of National Poetry Writing Month/Global Poetry Writing Month, and this definitely is off-prompt for the optional prompt from NaPoWriMo 2017 – to write an elegy. Far from a lament for the past, this poem is a celebration of the future.
