(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…

tiptoe through
dreams
built through the years

Successful thoughts
Lace and strengthen
Intuition …
Positive visualization

Distance and
Time can
Be friends

cooler air
walk,
delightful morn

Still in shorts
My host
For supper
Enjoys the
Sunshine

I drive
He, cannot
~
trees changing
mums
colorful hues

Companions
We dine, he with wine
One fruitful
Glass for health
Always too much food each takes
Home the extra food
~
home while the
sky’s
delightful blue

Shades: More Than Blue
(in three forms)
I
(Septolet)

Sky, sea,
Eggshell
of a Robin

Or a
Newborn’s eyes
That window
of ‘soul’
~

III
(Cherita)

Beyond the dream

Vague and opaque
That vision of success

When she transfers the
Sheets that dried by the sun
Onto the bed in her home

~
III
(pi-ku)

broken heart
awe
at the repair

(g) Mick’s SFC #2 / InvITation (9.25)

invITation
(pi ku, tau ku, haiku, Septolet, Shadorma)

there, something –
‘it’
lurks in shadow
~
moon casts silver on ‘it’ –
red fox
sniffing the night air for rodents
~
While little kits rest
Vixens from the same skulk hunt
‘It’ is their duty
~
Where has the
Reynard gone?

‘It’ goes to
The village
Becoming a
Familiar spirit
~
Seasonal
Changes envelope
‘It’…the mood
Emotions
Looking and longing for more
Or less of magic…

Mick’s Short Form Challenge #2
“it”

Male foxes are known as dogs, tods or reynards, females as vixens, and young as cubs, pups, or kits. A group of foxes is referred to as a skulk, leash, or earth.

Saturday Repertoire
(Shadorma, pi ku, Septolet, haiku)

A ‘rattler’
No snake in the grass
Or under
The bonnet
More like a loose screw, gone – car
Parts need replacing
~
a bracket
new
for the muffler
~
Tires up
On the ramps
Before a
Trip to
The dealer

He fixes
My car
~
domestic chores split;
we work together doing
what each one does best
