Imagination Plantation a Hullaballu

imagination-plantation-1

I was tagged for the imagination plantation challenge by Di at pensitivity101 for the challenge that originated with Nova Namaste, thanks it was fun. The first thing that struck me was the commotion of the piece and it’s child-like energy. Thus was born a Dr. Seussish little ditty.

A Midsummer’s Day

On a mid summer’s day
in the land of Hullabalu
Sandy was walking
and talking with Booou

“It’s a fine sort of day
everyone’s out and about,”
Sandy said to Booou
raising her voice to a shout

Booou frowned in reply
“there’s just too much noise
from helicopters and trains
from all the girls and boys”

Sandy said “come let’s leave
the city’s noisy crowds far behind
venture out into the forest
who knows what we’ll find.”

That’s just what they did
and do you know what they found?
No shouts, no horns honking
just a whisper of sound

The most beautiful melody
lilting along on the breeze
the song of the forest
wafting soft through the trees

The Ebony Wisps – A Twittering Tale

TT 3.26.19

The Ebony Wisps had sharp talons and needle-like teeth. They feared only one thing, birds. The children strung open cages between the buildings inviting the birds to come. The birds loved the new homes and twittered merrily away while dive bombing any Wisp that came within reach.

Weather’s Treacherous Alchemy

wordle 396

For the Sunday Wordle – I’ll give it a whirl. 😉

Treacherous Alchemy

The mix of salt and pepper skies
which brings the warmth of spring
can make the spirit sing
and the heart swell to life
But cloudy days are chill
with winds that sting and bite
but the pull still strong
of the moon in bright song
peeping through clouds so bashfully
belies weather’s treacherous alchemy

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

Inn of the Purple Door – a Crimson Creative Challenge

CCC 3.13.19

For Crimsons Creative Challenge

Inn of the Purple Door

The bottles were lined up in a row. The window faced the full moon and each bottle touched some bit of the metal grid. All was in readiness. Shara entered her circle of salt, lit the candles and settled herself to the ground. She began mixing herbs with her mortar and pestle and chanting her spell.
