What are you, writer?

I am the owl / who asks questions in the dark

I am the wolf / who runs alone

I am the road / that takes you nowhere

I am the axe / whose edge is dulled

I am the lightning / that briefly reveals

I am the tree / that senses autumn

I am the stone / time wears away

I am the soil / in need of rain

 

Thank you to Monica Carroll for the prompt! N.

    • Thank you so much; I can take no credit for the idea behind it, but it was a fascinating and really quite challenging piece to write. I like the earthy, organic feel of the original quoted in Monica Carroll’s post and wanted to capture something of that myself; I tend to write about and from nature most of the time anyway! Nick
