The Trail Blazer



Twinkles of stars fill the sky,
Leaving wanderers ponder why.
.
The writer is blocked from writing
By his own assumption of writing;
.
The explorer is kept from advancing
By his wrong perception of exploring.
.
Before writing, before exploring,
One has to ask the elephant and the dog on how to cooperating.





Magpie Tale #75   And Short Story Slam Week 6 (Children’s Literature), Welcome IN!

Please check out FANTASTIC writers at both prompts, enjoy the creativity spilled all over the blogging land!
