This is a haiku I wrote about one of my characters, an elven fighter/archer, for a contest on a site I played her at. It came joint first :o) (long story how she got to have the same name as me ;p)
This is just a poem I wrote at christmas last year about the winter faery who brings the snow, or perhaps she's a winter goddess? Poems aren't my thing lol, but i do like the first verse.
I had the urge to write something short... So I wrote a haiku. Its about magic. *shrugs*
No, I wrote them, not Melissa. I wrote these when I was thinking about a letter I had been writing her which I lost. She likes dragons a lot, by the way. We won't go into further details here. I should probably email her to check this new stuff out, huh?
I'm worried that an explanation ruins a haiku, so read the poem before you read this. Go on.---Okay? Have you read the poem first? Now you're allowed to read my winded shpiel.While studying Unicorns in the Man, Myth, and Magic encyclopedia, I came across the idea that alchemists would look for Hermes in the form of a unicorn to herald their success. The article linked Hermes to the unicorn's androgynity (having a female body but a male horn). After all, the appearance of Hermes during a successful experiment would mean being transformed into a being of spiritual "gold" without any bodily or social limits. This is my try at what an alchemist might say before being whisked off to perfection. It's from early 2009, by the way.
This is the first of many poems written from Avalon's perspective; she has lots of really vivid memories of her home (in Faerie, on the island of Avalon--that's where she got the name, obviously), and they make for equally vivid imagery, I think.
A series of Haikus (japanese poem where the syllables go 5,7,5) about a pegasus.
Sometimes when my dear friend Cardboard Hut (AKA Glo 'The Bug' Bowden, whose permission I have to post) is writing, she is in need of inspiration. That's when I write random poetry. Lately it has come in the form of Haiku. Enjoy! OH! DO NOT READ THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE READ UP TO PART XII IN HUT'S STORY!!! Otherwise I would feel a great pang of guilt and not be able to forgive myself for not sufficiently warning you!!!
I wrote two poems around Christmas time last year that consisted of strings of haikus- fairy tales that never existed, and I'm very fond of them. This is the first of two and was featured in the same portfolio as 'The Ways of Old Magic.' Its sister story became a bedtime story and great use of page space in 'Local Legends.'
Eh...its a haiku...at least, that's what it was supposed to be. Written for sophmore english class during poetry month last year. Any comments?
Another haiku, this one on my more customary field, vampires.
Mmmmmm. Roadkill. XP But in Soviet Russia, roadkill eat hobos! Sorry, couldn't resist. 2007
