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 [...]

FFfAW: The Birth of Ambition

The Birth of Ambition "This used to be one of the greatest gardens in the area." The rough voice caught Finley's attention as he stomped along the path. "Some day it could be again." Finley paused, juggling his armfuls of equipment as he peered at the old gardener leaning on his spade beside the path. With weathered [...]

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. [...]

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…

The Storyteller's Abode

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.
