a once a year occasion

a once a year occasion

it was a gathering of sorts

being outside

it was hard to determine

what souls lay within

but the spirits were high

dancing inside the circle

and ties

even blood couldn't break

music filled this place

and the chatter

was incredulous

lights bounced off

showing a structure

without walls

the little dead tree

in the midst of this greatness

sprouted buds

in the dead of winter

fires sparked

and warmth was present

on this occasion

this once a year occasion

leaving some to wonder

why this doesn't happen

more often than not

all hallows eve? a spark of life celebrated amongst the harvest of the once living

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
