Song of Variety

This is for the 4th day of NaPoWriMo. It was inspired by a prompt from Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads.


A panoply of selves sing from me,

Diamond-faceted soul has not only

One melody but four-part harmony:

I am the sparrow and the eagle,

I am quiet, sweet, friendly and a rebel,

I am the quiet river and the raging fire.

I am the quiet fire and the raging river.

I am a little girl dancing, a woman who sings,

I remember my young self on a swing //

I reach for the future, jumping, flying —

    I am a little girl dancing, a woman who sings

    Sigh this describes beautifully the myriad selves we carry within. 💞
