Carrot Ranch Invitation: Spell… Bound?
(OctaTimbre with a Septolet haibun)
There is excitement in the air for me
I am stretching my wings, embracing something different
There is a slight tremble, shadow of fear…
No one will want to come and play
The enchantment of creating is the rainbow lure
Who will nibble and possibly take the bait?
Nerves rattle like the moistureless leaves just waiting…
To fall …will they be crushed under foot?
Will I be a successful mage with my
Willow wand in hand and cast my spell
I’m posting this on my three main blogs…Please come and join the fun here:
