Day 5: Eulogy

(I was absolutely stuck on this prompt for the whole day, until I realized that eulogies did not necessarily have to be for a deceased person. Have some short praise written for one of my favourite authors of all time, Neil Gaiman.)

Here's to the
crafter of words,
the man who 
spins tales of

ancient gods fighting for recognition
 among the hostile world
of modern America

underground cities
with a secret named Door

Morpheus and his siblings
who must adapt to survive

magic beings and 
a pond (or ocean?) hidden
in fragmented childhood memory

and many more filled
with tangled wordplay
and plots that demand
to be devoured,
leaving his readers
drunk in
his worlds.
