Wildwood fantasy


My childhood fantasy
Took me to the wildwood
Of my dreams.
Here in the wildwood
Existed earth
Sprites and nymphs.
I glimpsed them
Dancing and
Singing mysteriously.
I wished I was
Part of their world.

Ancient messages


Dry, deep notches like ancient veins. Musty, crumbling messages bleeding, oozing earth’s essences. Wrap and weave around her giant paternal bows and swollen girth.
