Did I enroll
To be
An oxen
For the
Faceless farmer
Yoke fitted
Ploughing on
And on

In response to the daily prompt Enroll

The earth will arise
Topple all fences and walls
A spark in the night

Child Arising

By Scott Bailey © 2018

It is inevitable
A child will arise
And topple
The obstacles
You put in their way
Grow strong in spite of them
Grow strong because of them
And set the world aflame
With angry hope
Think on that
And tremble

Note – this was inspired by Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday challenge – but doesn’t qualify in any way. Not sure how can credit her without creating a pingback. Check out her main site and you will find the challenge section. This is not in any of the forms required but came to me in a flash and I liked it so I am putting it out there anyway.
