A poem for Robert Plant's birthday. Writer's Cramp 8/21/2014
Golden Stairway By the Misty Lake
Jessica Marie

On my morning walk I stumbled upon a misty lake,
a moment of despair, I thought I surely made a mistake;
the lemon yellow sun that brightened my path disappeared—
but after the panic subsides, I spot bright fish in water so clear.
Dazed, remember the one time at the cupcake place
where you rambled on with tears strewn upon your pale face;
he took you out and from that moment your memory escapes you,
and in the months that followed, so confusing and blue:
I have finally broken free of that chain, my first walk in days—
water rushes and peace washes over me as I follow the stairway.

The prompt was to celebrate Robert Plant's birthday on August 20. Happy birthday, Robert! Keep rocking!
