A Great Disturbance in the Force

There was a great disturbance in the Force

It happened and I felt it

I felt like the lives of millions, trillions

Were snuffed out in one day


There was so much great potential

Characters that could have been

Stories that made you cry and won

The world’s collective heart


There was a great loss in the world

The loss of a creative spark

A genius that kept on going despite

Challenge, loss, and heartbreak


There once was a great writer

Who told stories so timeless and great

Who hid among big names and manuscripts

Whom we should remember all the same


Remembering a deceased writer whose works were an early influence.  Rest in peace, my writerly heroine.
