(g/s/f) Carrot Ranch Invitation: Spell… Bound? (10.12)

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

Interrupt time
Interpret space

There is
No race
Just a
Hope for
For participants…

(g) About Being True (6.7)

About Being True
(Elfje series)

Trust
In authenticity
Is a must
No opaque little white
Lies

Forgery
Though it
Is an art
Isn’t welcomed in these
Parts

Cute
And pasty
Just isn’t tasty
When soul food is
Wanted

(g/nf) CR/ Saving Grace (1.13) wp

Saving Grace
(pi ku, tau ku, haiku, tau ku, pi ku & prose)

spring-like warmth
bade
her out, then in

lady-bug, a beetle
flutters
round the lamp light seeking the sun

gently brushed into
a cup; returned to nature ~
she see the full moon?

after some more rain drops
the clouds
parted for the Wolf Moon and stars

stretching there,
long
bare branched shadows

Some say humans are aggravating the normal
evolution of climate change. In part that may be
true. But there were thousands of years that the
climate changed and there were no humans.

Or enough human ingenuity to do anything more
than survive. Now human intelligence must work
overtime.

Other Carrot Ranch 99 word pieces

January 12: Flash Fiction Challenge
January 12, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story
that expresses a strong concern, something to give a crap about. Something
that brings out the feeling to stand up. How can you use it to show tension
or reveal attitudes?
