Tuesday Talk Today...

... something a bit different:

Floating Freely in the Air

I can see a blanket of flat, thick mist
creeping up the valley,
Floating freely in the air;


The moon's just rising
Like a glowing pearl,
Floating freely in the air;


Autumn leaves, as moonlit butterflies,
flow in fragile flutter,
Floating freely in the air;



The tawny owl in the whispering pine
cuts the motionless night
As it floats freely in the air;


The eerie bark
of the calling stag
Floats freely in the air.


The magic of moorish beast and flora
Floats freely in the air.

    1. Thank you Tea - this lovely poem was written by the grandson of one of my neighbours here in our North Devon village.

  2. That's very, very good for a lad of that age. I hope he keeps on writing. It's very imaginative and he uses the words well.

Thank you for leaving a comment - it should appear immediately, but Blogger sometimes chucks its teddies out of the cot and has a tantrum (especially if you are a Wordpress person) If you are having problems, contact me on author@helenhollick.net and I will post it for you.
However, SPAMMERS will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam my blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that I DID warn you...
