Stray Thought 14

 Was a singer, not a monk

Songs written by others
fell from her lips, like nurturing rain

Often dreamed of dragonflies
guarding the gates of dream-time
where own song lived,  unheard

Elizabeth Crawford 11/14/2017

Note: In Native American mythology, dragonflies guard the gates to dream-time.
