Our thematic words for this exercise were either "flight" or "certainty". Here's mine:
The Flight of Sons
He grew up on Star Wars -read all the novels, built the Legos,hanging at the bookstore &dreaming of living in the stars.
Yes, he read Star Wars novels, butI didn’t want him to join the academy.Only just to dream of living in the stars.I didn’t have more in mind.
To actually join the academy?Yes, we got Legos to play it out;I didn’t have more in mind.Sons - they want to fly.
We bought all the Legos;I dreamed of stars.He learned to fly.After all, Star Wars.-Andromeda Jazmon
