April #AtoZChallenge and #PoetryMonth
1. To celebrate my appreciation of life
2. To experience the process of writing linked poetry, a form of Japanese renshi
3. To give thanks for and better appreciate a life well-lived.
The flowers are a colorful bonus for the #AtoZChallenge

E is for Elixer and Eucalyptus
My dreams of youth
recall an endless ride.
and back roads, racing
across shadows tossed to earth
by pines and ancient oak.
The sun, a steady companion,often present, always eager
to return when showers end.
Wind, both friend and foe.
Youth, the elixir that turnsa long stretch of summer
into a magical adventure.
Memories of those early years of such freedom seem to get better with each recall, don't they?
