This was done for another word challenge at Spirit Musings

Just a word of thanks to those who helped me

with the meaning of some words...Duh...did not know some...So!!!

Here are the ten words


Gossamer: Zephyr: Equinox: Trove:

Ultimate: Celebration: Yard: Quest: Scatter



“Trove Unknown” 

While Equinox is out to play silently

An equal game of darkness and light

Zephyr plays his own game

By touching me ever so gently

Like me…we are on this ultimate search

As I sit here quietly

Covered by peace and tranquility

I can feel your touch of fresh air

As your breeze

Brushes through my hair

A flirting gossamer touch

Gently caresses my skin

As I stare upon the horizon wide

Our search…the guest in life

I can hear the laughter of drunken people

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

In a distance far away

Havoc takes my own backyard

Like a shooting star

Scatters a million sparks in different directions

The temptation to laugh

To separate good from evil

My goal in life I should rather avoid

That’s why I am here

When the sun crosses the plain of earth's equator

And day and night are of equal length

My Trove still unknown…hidden in the dark soil of the earth.
