National Poem Writing Month 2021: Poem xxx: Farewell

based on a prompt written by Jacqueline Saphra, and featured in this group of prompts published back in 2015 by The Poetry Society of the U.K. This prompt challenges you to write a poem in the form of a series of directions

Row, row down the stream

Sing softly to rhythm of the oar.

Bow, bow down seeing the shore

Whisper lowly, no one should see.

Take a vault or make a jump

When the forest is near.

Hop and jump on the boulders.

Inhale, exhale, take a deep breath

The steps of stars beckoning you

To the path made of the light of moon.

Row, bow, leaving a deep breath

Drawing the last line of the poem.

April wind will sound melancholy,

Mundane and daily life echo around

With the sun rising behind the haven of mine
