a what?

When you look at me, what do you see?

stick

a stick?

a stick with two pieces of duct tape?

an old worn out stick being held together by two pieces of duct tape?

˜

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Let me enlighten you…

˜

I am my master’s Excalibur.

I have fought gallantly alongside the doers of good

in a kingdom littered with ruthless knights

and

fire-breathing dragons.

˜

I have channeled my master’s life force

to insure the safety of the Republic

and

to all whom reside in our galaxy

and

beyond….

˜

I have brought life to my master’s magic –

igniting the spells needed to battle

the Dark Wizard

and

his followers.

˜

I have traveled back in time

when dinosaurs roamed the earth

and

a large gorilla terrorized

the jungle

&

when the good guys had to fight the bad guys –

I was

(still is)

my master’s

constant companion

˜

So,

I may have begun my life as part of a tree

but

the day my master discovered me on the ground

was the day

my true destiny

was born!

stick 2

remnants of bark

stick 3

who nibbled on me?

stick 4

the deadly blade!

A few tidbits of interest – Peyton is the master and his sword/saber/wand/machete has been a part of the family for over 8 years.  It has suffered two major life threatening injuries.

    That’s a piece of childhood right there. Did it get packed in the bx with all the most important stuff?

    I love your imagination as you wrote this! Isn’t it great how something that appears ordinary to everyone else can become magical in our imagination. It is what I love about reading and writing! This was great Kimberly 🙂 xoxox

    I stumbled across a something in the garage, which in turn led me to the vault of Words4jp, which in turn led me to May 3, 2013, which in turn led me to this post…which in turn led me to a reblog… It’s funny how that happens, isn’t it????? {All of this turning is making me dizzy…….}

    I understand. I possess a wooden sword that belonged to my mother, and her father before her. I am not sure if he made it, or if it was made for him.

      yes, this ‘what’ will be handled down….to future generations:) We may, however, have to replace the duct tape:)
