The Red Riding Hood Who Never

Walking on the path

Far away from life

Lights dim

Showing the way

That shadows embrace

On the path



Of the forest surrounding

Looking, seeing

A call

Then nothing

Seeing a shape

In the shadowing

Running through the moonless

Dim light

A howl



Looking to see

A lone shape

~Running down the path


The sky pales

On an empty path

With tracks

To tell the tale


A red cape

Left hanging

On a far off tree


This was written for Real Toads and the art was done by the talented Amanda Robinson!
