For visually challenged writers, the image shows a hooded figure in the darkness, silhouetted against flames that echo its shape. The figure holds something in its hand that may, perhaps, be a wand…


A young girl beating the signal flame into being

The sound hollow, echoes of broken time returning

She stands like a shadow before the white flame

Drumstick held in hand, conjuring old energy

Searching for answers to yesterday’s dreams

Why the white flame holds her own image?

Light and dark from another time

Memories drum-like distant thunder

Inside her mind

A sound telling her of power only she can find

That one true thought will set it free…
