Rambling in the Fairy wood


In the Fairy Wood a cool wind sings

Songs of summer past: Larks and cherry blossoms

Rambling roses for fairy posies.

Speckled yellow, ruby and rust leaves swirl,

Crunching under toes.

Dappled light, warm and bright Iilluminates

 faces of forest mythological creatures,

A shadow show emerging; tree nymphs, Boris the troll

And frolocking fairies.

Brooding skies like galloping waves, 

Tallow mallow ggiant’s fists!

Twisters suck up golden mists.

Serene Snowdrop


Serene Snowdrop,

Small heart translucent face,

Peeping shyly through downy lace.

Awakened by a sour biting  breeze,

Which makes her cower, she

Curls up, sheltering under boughs

Of mighty beech trees.

Suddenly a shower of frosty crystals

Adorn the mysterious, tearful princess,

Crowning her with a spectacular tiara

As the dryad minstrels play their lyres.

Skadi’s Breath


Skadi's breath
Skadi’s breath falls
Like a wailing frozen veil;
Weathering crevices,
Tethered,
Feathering,
Ragged intaglio scripture
Ripples,
As a tipple of Haw
Drips from pips
Onto Nymth’s
Fizzing lips.

Fly away with me over the stark moon


Fae folk play on silver spoons

Fly away with me

Over the stark moon,

Far beyond the

Darkening trees

Where wee fae lark

Playing tunes on

Silver spoons:

Whilst three cloaked

Folk cast runes.

“Don’t stray

Where amber eyes

Prey”.

There in the shadows

Crones moan and cackle

And bones rattle

Below in the gallows.

mermaids shake

In the shallows.

Weird sallow worms

Wake as the cauldron

Quakes;

Feared fakes

Tumble,

Crumble,

Spit and bake.
