The Other Way


Do it yourself
Find your elf
Creative spark within
Gleaning, preening
Shiny essence
Not the source without
Not the lazy man’s way
The other way
One step at a time
Down the cobblestone path
Through the fairy woods
And the angel’s words
As divine diva calls you forth
So you comply
And willingly walk
In Shaman’s footsteps
In artist’s way
It cuts and clears
Brings up relief and fears
It sears and provokes tears
And turns a sharp left
Into laughter
