Wind blown seed misses
the earth which cradled deep roots.
This new soil is strange
to me. These flowers are odd,
but I recognize their scent.
Song Choices: Kyrie by Mr. Mister and Philadelphia Freedom covered by Tina and Ike Turner
Today's poem is linked up to Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads' Tuesday Platform.
This poem is from the point of view of Yuuki, a character I have enjoyed writing about for years. The events of this poem take place after this short story, though the full story of what happens to Yuuki next will be covered in my upcoming short story collection, The Trouble With Wanting and Other Not Quite Faery Tales, which will drop in Fall 2018.
