Lavender and Raspberry Letters

Lavender and Raspberry Letters

She walked
Through the theater
Smelling of lavender
And hoping
To find her purpose.

She saw the sign
At the end
Of the room
In raspberry letters,
“EXIT”.

Maybe the lavender
Made her heady,
Bold, brave,
Whatever.
But, “EXIT”
Was the wrong direction.

One by one,
Until there were only two,
The raspberry letters
Faded away,
Leaving the message
“IT”.

Still feeling bold,
Nervy, fearless,
The scent of lavender
Motivating her
To “IT”.

“IT”
Was her purpose
And she left
The raspberry letters
Behind her.
