Leaving Their Shoes Behind

  There’s a pile of pumps at the peaceful passage leading to Wildling Wood.  They’ve kicked (off) up their heels and wielded their swords and let all that hair (golden and otherwise)down and traded their pointy crowns for flowers.  Now, they spend hours bare-foot loose and fancy -free, having also … Continue reading

Sunset in Wildling Wood

They gather in their daisy-chain crowns and their mudlucious feetto drink in that golden stone falling.  They clasp hands and stand with faces draped in tangerine glowkissed only by a tower of shine.  They sigh. That feisty moon rises. And the shenanigans begin.

Everything but the Kitchen Sink

I think I’ll start in Wildling Wood, believing in magic and creaky swings.  Here there be dragons, and wander worlds and infinite blanks and daisy chains.  And then (thought caught), I’ll ponder over rum-bled phrase, how many princesses chickens rumpled names it takes to start a revolution (late).Silly goose. We’ll switch giggles … Continue reading

Believing in Magic

It’s easy, here in Wildling Wood,where the moon casts her nightly spell. She tells  the sky just how to brew and spill its starry secrets.  The flowers bow and curtsy to the passing breeze, a whimsy’d waltz.  Dragons dance with nymphsand every soul gets a second … Continue reading

here there be dragons

we be -lieve in them, of course as we have seen them withour own eyes.  their embered breath,spiking the sky.  their spangled skin, tangled in scars.  imagine our delight to find they’re on our side,joining our nightly fire-dance, and teaching                                         us                                                  to                                                                          fly.  ::PAD, day 27.
