alight alliteration

a sacred sparrow hovers over the sage, she flutters a feather giving gift of a page the alliteration lights with a spiral of sparks, and the quickening quill darts to dazzle the dark worlds of wonder sing through my mind, and building a bastion with mosaic designs I now leave lines of crumbs and seed, praying the sparrow comes back to feed light on the language and with a little chagrin, I unfurl this page to a wintering wind.

That's what poets do, Jayne, "leave lines of crumbs and seed" in hopes they will feed the minds of readers. Great use of alliteration to bring across your message! Love, Carolyn
