Double Etheree – The Moonlight Concerto

Shunned
and scorned
by others
the ugly troll
hid deep in the woods.
Despite his appearance
he had the sweetest nature.
His greatest gift was his music
that drew outcasts from the dark shadows
to listen beside the moonlit river.
Among them was a windblown poppy seed
that was enchanted by the sweet sounds.
As if by magic it unfurled
into a crimson flower
that swayed to the soft notes.
For the only time
in his sad life
the creature
felt true
joy.
