Faerie Pantomime

This week’s Wednesday Challenge on Weekly Prompts is, Badly CroppedPlease go and visit their fabulous site by clicking >> Here . Below is my abstract response to the prompt… Where I ‘Imagine’ the world has been “Badly Cropped” in recent times..

Faerie Pantomime

Mid morning and here comes the sun

The Wala* goddess smiles on everyone

Enriching the bloody goodness in our veins

And saturating our skin when the sky rains

Is your blood the same colour as mine?

Does your skin drip-dry under the same sunshine?

Are your dreams moonbeam snippets of time?

Do you imagine the world to be a faerie’s pantomime?

And we the audience, laughing at their mystical rhymes

Together dancing and ringing the city’s peace chimes

*Wala: Aboriginal mythical solar goddess.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Ivor, a deeply spiritual post. ❤ The themes of brotherhood, peace, and oneness with nature are dear to my heart. Your poem is beautiful and heartfelt. I can't imagine the time and resources that went into the making of that stunning video. Your post is the first I saw today, and it made my spirit soar!
    Thank you!
    All the best, Ivor! Cheryl

    1. I’m so happy you enjoyed my post. I’d been working on the poem for a few days, and it still doesn’t feel right to me. Hopefully readers will understand what I’m trying say 🤔 oh that video is truly an amazing piece 🙄💙🌏
