About Me
The autumn leaves were falling.
Color cascaded through his mane.
The sound of the ocean was calling
Through the misty veil of rain.
Majestic against the dying sky,
A wreath of flowers upon his head,
The air, resonating with his cry,
Echoed words the winds had said.

I watched the unicorn on the hill
As the dusk descended to dark.
With the evening's broaching chill,
I heard him whisper to my heart.

No one should capture a unicorn.
It was a story told to a child.
Don't steal the magic in his horn.
Just watch him running wild.

He stood silhouetted in the night,
White coat now silvered with rain.
My heart almost broke at the sight ~
He was bound with a golden chain.

I tried to cut the chain away,
But as I neared, he shied from me.
I wondered why his fears outweighed
His longing for the sea.

Then I too felt the yearnings of old
And heard the beckoning of the sea;
But though not made of gold,
There was also a chain binding me.

It was fashioned from my silence
And fastened tightly with my fears;
My laughter only a pretense
Which concealed the lonely years.
