A prompt by Adhra for d’verse – poets pub
So today I ask this question to you – do you want to reborn as who you are? Do you think you could come back like a bird? What would you be looking for if you come back?
Would I return where once I trod
this mortal stage of transitory breath
to soar on wing of eagle skimming forest pine
that nestle with the verdant heath
or glide with dolphin grace in oceans
deep and free of earthly woe
these antics, tho’ romantically ideal
are not in me
this soul will not return
in loved ones’ memories
I will abide
And never leave.
