@NaPoWriMo suggested writing an epic poem which of course I had tried my hand in 2012.
No worries – epics have always more to tell! So here’s an early in the day go at this.
Waiting for the day to begin
the dark book covers of the night
holding in the story ahead
waiting waiting so long waiting
for the adventure to begin
for the door to open
and to walk out into the world
stars and moon hang calm above
ceasing their own travels
keeping watch with the sleepless,
the waiting –
those whose dreams are not yet named.
