MAGPIE/ Prompt #66

                                                    photo/ tess kincaid/ magpie tales

I WROTE THIS POEM about a week before MAG 66 was posted.  I somehow knew there would be a match up, and soon, I hoped.  Tess, thanks for the wave length...


There is an authentic place
for all of us,
where we pull
the blanket of comfort
up to our chin,
and dream through
a universe of wonder
and discovery.

A genius, a prodigy
may have that
one true blessing,
that who am I?
handed to them on silver.

Most of us are not that lucky.
I was a tourist in my life
till a minute ago.

That's when I started
to assemble the blocks,
the alphabet,
and noticed that some
called this writing.

I finally arrived,
opened that door,
was able to yell out,
"Honey, I'm home".

I know exactly what that feels like.
That's the essence of good poetry, understandable lyricism.
