A Little Fairy Magic…

I think I might be a little late to the prompt for this one, but hopefully I managed to just sneak it in under the deadline…I can’t resist anything fae or moon-related!

Three haiku inspired by “Fairy” prompt over at Eugi’ Causerie – thanks so much for the inspiration, Eugenia! 🙂


Silver moon backdrop
To night-time fae enchantment
A world of wishes
*
Listen by night to
The whispers of stars and moon
Dream away the day
*
Timing is crucial
When the night falls and day flees
Magic by moonlight

Solstice Blessings and Ychydig / Little

 

Recently I’ve been collating some of the shorter poems from here on the blog with some new ones I have been scribbling away for a poetry competition on Sweek (which is still open by the way, for any budding poets out there!).

The result is Ychydig / Little, a collection of small poems, which can be found and read for free here.  There are 40 poems in all, none longer than 9 lines – I think.  The poems cover many topics; nature, the moon, stars, dreams, and more besides.  The Sweek stats magicians claim it will only take 4 minutes to read it from beginning to end.

And, in case you didn’t know, “ychydig” is a beautiful Welsh word (and one of my favourites) meaning “little”.  Though the title is Welsh, the poems are all in English.

If you do have a spare minute – or 4 😉 – and decide to take a quick look at the collection, please let me know what you think.  And, if you do enter the competition yourself, post a link to your entry in the comments below and I will gladly have a read.

Wishing you all the Brightest of Summer blessings! Or, if you’re in the southern hemisphere, Wishing you the Brightest of Winter blessings 🙂

Winter Morning (haiku)

I’m still lagging behind blogging-wise after completing NaNoWriMo, but I spotted this week’s Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge hosted by Kiwinana over at Ramblings of a Writer, and decided to write a haiku. (I know.  It’s been one of those kind of days…perhaps I will get around to writing a tanka for this prompt later in the week…) The words for Week 73 are “mornings” and “winter”.


A frosty breath mists

Words frozen, left unspoken

Cold winter morning

 

Blue skies

This is for the Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge, that Kiwinana is hosting over at Ramblings of a Writer.  Below is my effort for week 5; the words are “sheltering” and “resting”.  The prompt can be found here.  Go and check it out!


I am just resting

Sheltering from raging storms

Waiting for blue skies
