Rejoice! (a poem)

come join this feast!

bring broken souls,

rejoice before a table of treats

we’ll set a fire above stones

dance around it

with wild guilt

watch us twist & turn –

shaman beat their chests

children laugh with glee

night falls, the fire rises

the feast at its last course

time for the children to hide

as we carry on

Note: This is a collaborative poem I did with Rachel. I wrote a couple lines and then she wrote a couple lines. We plan to do more and share them – it was fun!

    You guys did excellent! I had no idea this was a collaborative poem, it flowed so well I thought it was written by one person! Bravo.

    I also loved these lines:

    “rejoice before a table of treats

    we’ll set a fire above stones…”

    Alright, I’m down for that. 😀
