CFFC: Stairs, Steps, Ladders

Blame Maddie stomped and banged, making her displeasure as clear as she could as she wielded her broom, dust motes swarming around her. It wasn't fair! None of it was her fault. Not really. She couldn't have known what would happen. And besides, things probably wouldn't have been any different even if the ladder hadn't been there. All that damned girl had had to do was...

Cee’s B&W: Older than 50 Years

Proudly they stand, ancient stones steeped in mystery, weathered and windblown on the lonely roadside, sheltering stories of times long past. Name carved in stone, black feathers bathed in blood,  warrior fallen in battle, legend unforgotten. Crawling on hands and knees, scrabbling and squeezing, hoping and praying that aches and pains are drawn away by weathered stone during undignified rebirth.... Continue Reading →

A Wild Habitat

Two years ago yesterday I started my blog, intending to post the occasional poem and my children’s stories and artwork. It has since been taken over by flash fiction and photography but my blog does still include quite a lot of poetry!

To mark my second blogiversary (yes, I’m a day late) I thought I’d reblog my very first post – the poem from which my username is taken.

I find the lack of any images on the post to be quite unsettling…

An Enchanted Place

For my first post to my blog I thought I’d share a poem I wrote. I hope you like it.

A Wild Habitat

Here…

I live in a world of
make believe,
a world
of light and music,
a wild habitat for
a fairy mind.
Here my life is
my own,
with no regrets.

Here…

Far from the mundane crowds,
from the manic race
through the maze of life,
my rat grows gossamer wings,
a metamorphosis
from beast
to butterfly,
soaring in shimmering flight.

Here…

I become a creature of
pure dawn,
dancing,
swaying amongst sunbeams
as wisps of melody
entice and enthrall.

Here…
in my world.

Breathe Deep

Breathe Deep Feeling nature's embrace, I Breathe deep. Cascading perfumes entwine, senses take to the sky, Feeling nature's embrace, I Hear the buzzing, the singing; let it fade to a sigh, Welcoming a serenity indigenous to sleep, Feeling nature's embrace, I Breathe deep. This is my first ever attempt at a triolet, a poetry form that intrigued... Continue Reading →

Beautiful Dawn

Awakening touch Virginal blossom caressed Before bees arise Today's pictures were taken at the wildflower meadow on a beautiful June dawn. Yes, after months (possibly even years) of saying I was going to go out at dawn to photograph, I finally did it! And it was an enchanting experience. As I watched the sun slowly extend its...

TLT: Waiting

Waiting "Why are you here?" he asked, even though he knew the answer. "I'm waiting for you." Her heels clunked against the cabinet in a familiar rhythm. "I'll wait forever if I have to." "I won't be long now." Ephemeral fingers traced his aged cheek before she faded from view. This post is for Sonya's Three Line... Continue Reading →
