A drop of blood …

Clippings_September_2018_LI

Parsley stood before the throne, staring down at her beloved and the green globe and realised she had no idea what to do.

Behind her, she could hear steel on stone. Parsley glanced over her shoulder to see the statues hurl themselves at Dracomagan and Peagreen. Nimue’s golden head turned from the fighting and the green eyes widened as she saw where Parsley was standing.

Sorrel unsheathed her sword. “Get on with it!” She ordered and stepped towards the sorceress.

Butterfly Cinquain 11

4 October, 2016
lurking
in a rotting pile
feeding on snakes and voles,
wrapped in wreaths of grass and garland
I drink
plant life and soul, ooze out bitter
blood, scratch at wooden walls;
dark ghoul of your
compost

Piercing barb

17 June, 2016
the piercing barb
enchantment’s snare
red blood falling
search for true love
thyme’s castle quest
prisoner sleeps
green globe still lurks

A ruby tear

16 June, 2016
a ruby tear will open the way
sleeping prisoner will be released
enchantment broken and true love found
they discover an empty castle
beyond the dark magical forest
and Parsley and Tym fall in love
enchanter remains a mystery

Red & Green

15 June, 2016
red and green are the
colours of my tale
red for the shed blood
that opens the way
green for enchantment
that tangles the mind
a promise, a curse
can Parsley unbind?
