Poem: rise sprite rise – 13/11/21

lightly lightly sprite
take your time
fly, soar, your flight
is delayed
but it is so warranted,
you’re finally here
rising above the trees
the blossoms into the skies so sweetly
and so you ride the atmospheric dreams.

your heart is bursting, full
for you have announced your intention
to live with graciousness and wildness
both extroversion of your abilities
to be beautiful internally and outwardly
you know that nothing truly matters
but the moment
this moment
this moment itself
for like a butterfly you’ve those
three days of freedom
to be whatever you please —
flit amongst the breeze
and to be, to be, to be
sprite become lightness
amazing in your abilities
your self-belief is uniquely pure
and its come as greatly as you pleased
but you worked hard for it
for this fleeting occasion
treasure it will you in your dear heart
admirable is your dedication
yourself, your life, your self-improvements,
your strength, your resilience
became so much more than
you ever dreamed you would be
and now, let the waves be ridden
the blustering breeze be strong
around your hair
fairy wings,
be prepared, World,
for you are finally there.
