NaBloPoMo:Winter weaver

Winter weaves
Dreams of
Summer’s lush
Leaves;
Autumn’s sanguine
Song,
Breathing meanly
Cooling
The land.

Winter weaves
Willows’ writhe;
Hazels’ howl;
Vixens’ prowl;
Squirrels squeal;
Hawks scream.
Deer dream.

Winter weaves
A breaching
River race:
Herons’ watch,
Gracefully.

Winter weaves
Barren branches
Reaching;
Cerulean skies
Fleeting.
Dreaming.
Weaving.

A-Z Writing challenge letter ‘W’ Wishing Tree


image

Hidden in the Wishing Tree,
Tokens large and small
Embellish hollows
And nooks.
Adornments, silver bells,
Moonstones and Quartz
Rose scented fairy cakes,
Strings of river pearls,
Patiently hang from
Creaking boughs
Awaiting spring dawn.

As Cuckoos cry,
Dryads fly, dancing
With butterflies.
Nymphs kiss each wish,
Encasing in pearlescent bubbles,
Releasing far away to
The land where wishes
Are fulfilled.

Satisfied,  the Wishing Tree
Shakes, stretches branches
Waiting for new wishes to come.

Make a wish!

A-Z writing challenge, letter L for listening to silence


image

Listen to silence.
Listen to breeze
Swishing through reeds
Writing messages to nymphs who
Pass along the meandering river
To the sea.
Listen to kingfishers dive into
The river with precision,
Proudly emerging with their catch.
Listen to the rustling of cootes
Weaving in and out of the bullrushes.
Listen to the silent crackling of
Weeping willows draping
Wispy branches solemnly.
Listen.  Listen to silence.
