The Unlit Way

Dreamscape house,
a sliver of narrow,
mirror to mirror
on a one way life,
the way behind
reflecting her choices.

Misplaced plans
falling upon unsettled gazes,
searching with hands
grasping again and again,
never surrendering,
forever forging ahead.

Time reflecting darkness,
the way unlit,
resolve becoming clarity
the harder she tried
in a waking world
where she dreamed until she got it right.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
