Cold Stones

11 June, 2021
cold stones
stand upright, still
hold power within space
activated by sun and moon;
speak now
let your thought fly across the miles
converse with those away
hear their thoughts and
prayers

This butterfly cinquain was written about the mystical stones that Lored and the Zoratti use to communicate with Kimorka many miles away. You can read all about them in the Fire Daughter!

Have you seen the book trailer yet? And don’t forget that Olin Heon (the first part of Fire Daughter) is just 99c until midnight tonight!

puffed clouds
like inverted
saucers, snowy white
blue sky, slightly blurred around the
edges;
what if they are not just a sky-
scape formation but that
aliens are
watching?

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

earthern
mysteries are
dark but not always as
deathly as they seem; fragrant soil
alive
with potential for life as worms
bring oxygen into
darkness – seeds live
again

leeks just
on the turn with
manky scallions and
potatoes and celery; what
a good
soup can be made from old food if
you take the time to chop
out the bad bits –
frugal
