"Z" is for Zealous - #A to Z Blogging Challenge 2017

"Z" is for Zealous in the last day of A to Z 2017 Blogging Challenge. I think of this word as a great and forceful energy within our universe. I see it as strength bubbling with gigantic intensity. As I pondered word possibilities, I considered Zodiac. Perhaps we can use two words, Zealous Zodiac. My painting is a 6" x 4" "Spirit Visions" image.

Zealous Zodiac

Leaping legends fly in our universe.
Dancing daffodils rise in spring.
Spontaneous spirits lift our hearts high.
Ruckus roots keep us earthbound.  

It is the zealous who drag our hearts away,
And leave us yearning for more.
Together we lurk, listening for the song
We never hear and cannot sing.

Still, the evening hides the dimness of the stars
And tells us what to say at midnight.
The rattle at the window turns light away
And sometimes rips darkness from sunshine.

It is the zodiac moments that guide our spirits
In the long journey through the green valley.
From under the little trees, the fairies come
And lead the zealous to the land of angels.
