Enmity, my prosecutor, has vanished. I've
realized that everyone...Enmity, the judge, the
crowd, the defendant...even the witness was me
My eyes slowly wander back down to the broken
dove within my hands. I smile at the power of my
realization and blow on it softly, bringing the
dove instantly back to life.
In the distance a cold shadow forms…its
frustration shakes the floor where I stand.
“You'll be back!” Comes the shrill and familiar
voice. The crowd becomes tense as a cold winter
wind flows from the anger in Enmity's voice.
I stand still, re-affirming my new ground from
the wayward lies. "No." I say firmly. "Maybe
in the past you would be right, but this isn't
the past any longer. I'm now a far better lover
than the loveless place of your arms."
With awe, I gaze around the room, walls falling
with each glance, exposing a paradise of flowers
With excitement pumping through my veins, I lie
down in the knee high blossoms, watching as a
wave of dandelions float carelessly above my
nose; I sneeze.
