Obviously because I like to share my writing with all of you, this is where they truly belong...
It started when a friend wrote a poem for me - Has anyone written anything for you?
And I wrote him a reply...
I just have to explain that our friendship has grown in a virtual world where we spend a lot of time pretending and play flirting. He is Role Play character but I have discovered a little bit about the writer underneath. Meanwhile I am a daydreamer who loves to write fairystories. So hopefully my poem reflects this ethereal fictional realm we inhabit.
((As my son keeps reminding me - Twitter is NOT real - but it really is fun especially when you find others who love playing with words as much as you do!))
The Princess' Reply
Knights in shining armour
Come in all sorts of shapes and sizes
And an unexpected rescue
Can take on many guises
For girls who want to live in fairytales
And long to be the princess
A poem from a handsome prince
Has to be,
the very best
And then there is another Role Play character I wanted to write a poem for but this poem I'm kind of sharing.
It fits a storyline he has been writing but the words were also inspired by a memory of a real waterfall I once stood under and the emotions I was feeling at the time. I'm glad I got the chance to remember that day and finally write about it in such a way.
Underneath the waterfall
Where cascading droplets do caress
Cool water on a summer’s day
Sun soaked skin with joy refresh
Washing clean, revitalising
Filling up the deepest parts
Making new what’s been forgotten
Healing jagged broken hearts
Memories tumble like the water
Sunlight sparkles on each drop
Rainbow crystals dancing round us
Don’t let these feelings ever stop
