The Promise of Spring

The Leprechaun

I dreamed of
the lush green fields that reside at
The Rainbow's End

In the center of this landscape

sat a Leprechaun 
on an enormous pot of gold

I asked this Guardian

if I could be given 
my heart's desire

"Certainly," 

said the Leprechaun.

"Aye, it's freedom you're after

and the power of a heart
without restriction;
You want to ply your trade
with painting and written 
words of fiction

But all things you believe set in stone

are really made of air,
So dance strong, live simple
& remain open;
Your heart will 
lead you there."

And I smiled.
