Little Prince

29 May



I am the sun that brings
light to the dark
giving way when the moonshine
I am the beetle that rolls
down the big ball of dung
that heavy flying bug behind
the civilizations of the Nile bank.
I am the blue sky above the
grey clouds
that amazing smile behind the
tear drop.
I am the defenseless calf
trailing behind the elephant matriarch
that classic knock out that follows
a missed punch.
I am the little prince with the
heart of a king
the beauty behind the bleak
the blessing behind the sin.
I am the gigantic fig tree
blooming from that tiny seed
I am the power of the vision
mixed with the dream
that unconquerable force
behind the thing called belief.

    Faith and hope . . . and them fulfilled.
    The strength of your piece I think is in its rhythm. It is moving.
