Sneak Preview Poem from a Winner of our Publishing Contest: Sue Lobo

Lillie 2

Between Worlds

Slipping through the lost mists of time,
No-man´s-land, not here nor there,
Tripping through dew-kissed herbs; cold feet bare,
Delicately brushing sweet lavender, sage & thyme.

Serenading bats, cobwebs kiss,
The sweet moths whisper, & the raven beckons,
My long-lived life over in seconds,
The serpent weaves a farewell hiss.

The forest bows, the lake calls,
Weightless I move through time´s veil,
Drifting between worlds, soft & pale,
Passing through life´s restricting walls.

Farewell sweet earth & to all I know,
I´m grateful for your love & the lessons taught,
For the gentle things & the battles fought,
But I must return home now, it´s time to go,
