She knows

what paints the gold in your eyes

whispers voices in your ears.

Perhaps it is darkness?

Others know the intermediary

of your change.  Respect and memories.

Lost wisdom

Lace of ages

You have been chosen.



(Reading Robert Jordan’s Eye of the World)

  1. I really like your poem Shawn!!! Have a beautiful week ahead!

  2. The Wheel of Time series is one of my all-time favorites! ❤

    • I don’t know why I’ve never read it before. I was highly recommended for teen readers, and sure enough, one of my students is also reading it right now. 🙂

  3. She knows it is not darkness.

What do you think?
