………..and here’s the treasury and story….can you find where each of the words are located in this snippet of a tale…

“La Boheme”

behind the everyday masks
that she wore
in public
behind the strained stretch
of her latex smiles
she had a deep need
for freedom


a yearning to break free
of her carefully placed steps
a yearning
to skip
to sway
to tap her toes
to simply dance
in harmony with the melodies of life
whenever it moved


a yearning that grew
as magnificent and expansive
as a passionate operatic strain from La Boheme
a deep desire that she could no longer


a yearning
to climb mountains
a yearning
to feel the breath of the wild wind
upon her face
a yearning
to scream, to cry, to smile a true smile
a yearning
to be
incomparably real


a yearning not to
simply cope
or to
keep silent
but to
wake up
live fully
and behold
the extraordinary
of who
she truly
