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.

Then Parsley remembered. A drop of blood had opened the way in the enchanted forest. Another drop of blood had woken Tym from his enchanted sleep …

The Attar of Chervil: Episode One

19 March, 2018

Dracomagan was nowhere to be seen. Parsley and Sorrel waited for her, whilst Sir Peagreen stood guard. Eyes glowed in the dark greenness and a chill wind rattled dead leaves.
“I think it’s werewolves and vampires…” Parsley moaned.
“… and horrible beasties!” Dracomagan appeared in the gloom, leggings gleaming. She grinned.
“Can’t see there’s anything to smile about,” grumbled Parsley. “Is there another way round?”
“No. One path leads to a blind canyon with no way over it and the other way just dumps you in that raging river we crossed yesterday. So, the quickest way to Nimue, is through that.”

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?

Knotted Spell

knotted spell undone
love restored and nightmares tamed
blood shed so freely
