Free Verse...

Serenity Light
Slowly she walks to the clearing
leaving tall rugged trees behind
her breath is in a labored state
she hurries to the wooden bridge
Escaping turmoil of decades
she turns quickly to see the path
behind her, empty as her life
no one to follow her footsteps
Moments of freedom caress her
plan of flight for so long now real
she quickly runs across the bridge
she reaches for her waiting light
A bright new dawn now comes to her
promises of a brand new world
she claims her found visions today
her night dreams were of darkest form -
serenity light gives bright dreams
- Rhoda Galgiani
