Through the Lady’s Eyes – a Crimson Creative Challenge

Through the Lady’s Eyes

Everywhere I go I seem
to find
the Lady’s spirit watching me
Look now, can you not see
the Lady’s face within the tree
or the
feminine forms etched in stone
nature’s hidden ghosts
abiding grace of form
now
look through her eyes
and you just might see
all this world was meant to be

The Path — a Crimson Creative Challenge

For Crimson’s Creative Challenge, a little magic 😉

The Path

Down, down, down we go
follow the path
to the stream far below
follow the stream
to wherever it goes
feel the magic
as it ebbs and flows
where fairies dance
and the forest plays
I found the magic
where night meets day

Yard Decorations – a Crimson Creative Challenge

For Crimson’s Creative Challenge # 127 a toast to unusual yard decorations.

This is so cool, I really want to meet these people. They just need a sign that says “caution, I am licensed to stab people with sharp objects” lol

My kind of yard decorations in Colac Bay, NZ

When I am old, I will wear purple and put up weird yard decorations instead of rose bushes; if you ask about me, my children will remark “oh crap, what’s the old bat up to now?” 🙂 ~JP

Crimson’s Creative Challenge # 124 — If Steps Could Talk

For Crimson’s Creative Challenge brought to us through the lens of Crispina Kemp, where we are invited to respond with whatever moves us. 🙂

My very thorough response in photo, poem, and music *tehehehe*

Steps to Kurama-dera temple – Kyoto, Japan

If Stairs Could Talk

Up, up, up we go
it matters not
whether fast or slow
when you reach the top
what sights you’ll see
come along and follow me

Crimson’s Creative Challenge – Memories of the Path

For Crimson’s Creative Challenge 118

Memories of the Path

Down the path to the river we go
along the trail the fairies know
to visit playful sprites and gnomes
in muddy banks I’ll sink my toes
where the sweet Fae Princess laughs
in splashing waters burbling past
we bow as one when her highness sings
of ancient days of wars and kings
as the chilling water prickles my toes
I hear Daddy’s call “it’s time to go”

Hikers Lament

For Crimsons Creative Challenge 114

Hikers Lament

Dried winter reeds whip around my legs
as my foot crunches through thin ice
making a small splash of freezing water
“hurry, hurry” the wind whispers it’s call
through the trees, eyes on silent wings
I nod to my companions that I’m OK
strong enough to continue, but somewhere
deep down, deep inside I feel squelching,
dampness and pinpricks of pain
as my soggy sock creeps down into my shoe
… ewwwwww …

Til next time ~Peace ~JP

A twisted tail

Round and round the light did turn
casting shapes upon the waves
dolphins leap and waters churn
imaginings mortal memory saves
ships of wood and men of steel
twisted tales from days of old
siren’s dirge the bells doth peal
from waters deep and bitter cold

Crimsons Creative Challenge – Elf on a Post

For Crimson’s Creative Challenge # 110

Elf on the Post

He leapt from the window
so happy and free
grabbed on to the post
and he giggled with glee
no more sitting idle
all alone on the shelf
it’s barstools and hotties
for this wandering elf
from the tip of the lamp post
he stared at the ground
just one problem remained
how the heck to get down …

CCC – Lovers Leap

For Crimson’s Creative Challenge 109

Lovers Leap

Waves pound against the beach
far below the “lovers leap”
tourists come to gawk in vain
searching for the charred remains
where lovers leapt to their demise
their dirge a seagull’s mournful cry
rest they here beyond sorrow’s reach
as waves pound against the beach

Crimson’s Creative Challenge # 106 – Words on Walls

For Crimson’s Creative Challenge # 106

Words on Walls

words of love
words of hate
written with chalk
written with paint
sometimes with the blood
of the artist’s soul
with anger or passion
too absolute
words written on walls
words written of truth
