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

Excavating the Archives: Lady Luna

Night time

By the silver stream

Endlessly flowing

She descends to the Earth

From Her home in the Moon.

Her name’s Lady Luna

She’s Queen of the Heavens.

With the magic of Starlight

She sings Destiny’s tune.

*

Throughout the night-time

She walks with the Mysteries

Casting Her spells

To which none are immune.

Charming, enchanting

Bewitching, beguiling.

With the magic of Moonlight

She casts Destiny’s rune.

Inspired By The Moon

An orb of silver

Hanging from a ceiling of stars

Illuminating the jet-black sky

With lunar light

As it chases away

Midnight’s shadow

The weather has turned cold here, but with the lack of cloud cover comes the opportunity to take some great pictures of the moon – one of my favourite sources of inspiration (if you have yet to guess it!)  The above photo was taken this evening, and the little poem (if you can call it that, such as it is 😀 ) was written outside in the cold, by lunar light.

Here are some other moon-inspired pieces you might have missed hereabouts:

If you check any of them out and enjoy them, please let me know.

All there is left for me to do is ask if you have had a good weekend.  I hope so.

Stay warm everyone and bright blessings for the week ahead 🙂

Invisible Changes (Earthbound #4)

I waited all night but to no avail. As the sun came up, lightening the sky and chasing away the night I knew something had changed though I couldn’t tell what.

It was a feeling, deep within me but also so far beyond me that it would be impossible to gage the distance in time and space. For whatever it was, was both before and after, both new and old. Like a friend I never had but had always known. A lesson just learned but knowledge I had always possessed.

The very notion was baffling.  How could it be?  And more importantly, how did I know that it was true?

I sighed as I came to the conclusion that I would never find the answers I sought.  As each step I took, another set of questions manifested whilst revealing nothing.

My chest tightened.  A lone tear ran down my cheek.  Was this to be my fate, then?  Was life supposed to go on, much as it always had?  Voices in the darkness?  Shadows in the night?  Riddles from the moon and stars?

After all, there was no friend here to guide me, to hold my hand and tell me everything would be all right.  I was alone.  And no knowledge that I possessed could possibly make sense of what was going on, in and around me.

Where was the wisdom in invisible changes?  And why had the incessant whispering that had plagued my dreams suddenly stopped?

As I waited, I felt like I was standing on the edge of a precipice, on the cusp between knowing and not knowing. What if they answered? What if they didn’t?

Time moved on.  Nothing interrupted the peace of the clearing.  Eventually I lay down on the damp grass and stared up at the night sky, gazing longingly at the silver moon and studying the stars…all the time wondering how they had captured my imagination, my conscious and subconscious self, pondering the enchantment I had fallen under.

It was the stars that drew my attention.  I tried to see beyond them, into the darkness. Somewhere out there were the answers I sought, wrapped in a white bright light waiting for me to find. But they were beyond my reach, beyond my grasp and beyond my understanding.

Silently I pleaded with the tiny twinkling beacons that filled the firmament. Just tell me something, just one little thing that will help me to make sense of the world, of the universe. Of myself…

But things are never as they seem, and questions once asked cannot be unasked, even if you no longer desire the answer. They have been released into ether, given over to a higher power and so are beyond the control of the one asking them.

Sometimes it is better to let confusion reign, for the price of clarity can seem absurd. And knowing can be just as difficult to live with as forever remaining in the dark.
