Wondering Wandering

x

Groggy wide eyes opened,

limbs outstretched

yawning boy, timid and green

bright blooming blue fairy, lilting timid:

met.

x

Fairy, in the dark

unwise, unknowing, led.

x

Otherworldly, melodic voice

"Listen! Let's go see the Great Deku Tree!"

x

Mido's barrier:

obstacle, why?

x

Little boy pondered

Fairy guessed:

"Sword and shield!"

Oaken wisdom's wish- surely!

x

Wondering boy.

Wandering boy.

Shield purchased.

x

Wondering boy.

Wandering boy.

Sought advice: where?

x

Fairy, unsure, unwise, unknowing:

guessed?

x

Seeped no words.

Confused, patience-coffers drained,

Comforted.

Encouraging, softly spoken words

emanated.

Boy: drifted to rest.

x

Oh pallid presence of dawn,

child awoken, renewed.

Sword, I shall find!

x

Wondering, Wandering, Wondering boy.

Curiously poked -unready- to Wood.

x

Winged creature, timid! Shaking,

Oh premature presence, hasten your exodus!

x

Boy and fairy, lost.

Unsure, both.

Melodies followed,

led astray.

x

Boy, seated: corner near entrance exit entrance exit

Back to cornered bark. Lost.

Tears streamed.

x

Innocence clear, clearly lost.

sadness evident.

x

Tiny brightness alarmed.

x

Crying boy, silent.

x

Hesitation.

x

Soothing miniscule hands pet golden, smooth hair.

Calming. "Don't worry young Link, we'll find out way back together."

x

But the twists and turns, the dank dark tunnels and ways!

The music, lifting, lowering.

The source unknown?

x

Soothing miniscule hands pet golden, smooth hair.

Soft words, brave words, whispered directly within boy's ear.

x

Exit safe.

Sunset.

Drowsy shielded boy and fairy trudged

to tree house across.


Reviews make me happy on the inside. This chapter was based on my own premature adventures into the Lost Woods, before I was supposed to go in there. I suck at games, to this day. Freshly revised and reformatted. (because FFN is a paaaaaiiinnful place to format poems.)
