Bluebell Woods

 

 

Bluebell Woods

 

In the enchanted forest, far, far away

Rabbits dress in waistcoats and chat about their day

Fairies live in toadstools, deep in the wooded dell

They sing and dance to the chimes of the quivering bluebell

An Enid Blyton story, a fairy tale or dream

Or closer to the truth, than at first it would seem

 

Down in Bluebell Woods, which is not so far ...

Hansel's Universe

I don’t want to look up at the sky anymore
for it terrifies me
the stars have never been more than crumbs of the universe

and the bottom of your chin
along constellations complex
crumbs that leave a path
tiny pieces of you
that lead me home

Just close your eyes now and picture this scene
A castle so scary no Childs ever been
 
The sun doesn’t’t shine on its great grey cold walls
And even the battlements look lonely in the rain as it falls
 
And the drawbridge resembles the teeth of...

Cinderella Dreaming

`

 

 

 

The birthing of articulated expression
will always find its means of entering
into the world outside and beyond
the inner recesses of our awareness.

I love the wee and trippy hours of the
after midnight when the glass slipper
lay glimmering aloof in the moonlight
and the weary dreamer sets some
ink of thoughts onto the parchment
of a woozy head - too...
