For the Secret Keeper’s writing prompt. The words this week are:
BIRTH | TRANCE | PRIDE | SEEK | FLIRT
In primal darkness when the earth
Came to birth,
She spread her wings,
Embraced all things.
When first we dared to sing and dance
In magic trance,
Beneath the light
Of stars at night,
We sought to master all of life,
Our downfall pride,
The turning tide.
And now the dark rolls back again
With no birth pain,
No joyful cry,
This time we die.
