Coming Soon – Fire Daughter

dark rock
towers skyward
the shadow stretches west
creeps swiftly, hastening night's shade - 
quiet
now but with a threat of fire
erupting, exploding
shattering earth;
black death

butterfly cinquain © Freya Pickard 2021

I wrote this butterfly cinquain to encapsulate one of the things that Lored fears during the telling of Fire Daughter. What do you think? Will YOU buy it?

And available now is The Sound of Brilliance edited by Susi Bocks. This anthology features the brilliant work of 41 poets and writers. The pieces within these pages are the best of those submitted and showcased on The Short of It online magazine.
