” minding midnight ” – Nikki Marie Rink

many, Many moons ago

stood a forest-

Dark & Dense.

within the Tall & Looming trees,

wandered the Keeper of Loneliness.


among Countless ill-lit paths

alongside many menacing streams

the Keeper spun & spun in circles,

hopelessly searching for Lost Dreams.


one by one-

the branches broke.

the leaves danced to the ground.

the sunlight revealed a quiet clearing-

Where her Soul was found.
