Spirit magic is, if you ask me, the most powerful. I wrote this so very long ago too.

Conjured Wolf
Silence     low chants
Incense twists in smoke
Smells of ancient kings
Glitter golden rings
Guttural low growls
From ashes, arise the wild
Slowly she turns and smiled
Hands out, murmuring softly
They stop and don't attack
Sniffs      sit back
Ask a favor, give a gift
And off into the world the wild wolves shift

I really like this, very flowing and well written

Lovely work there...and the whole poem reads almost as if a spell of sorts, or a magic verse.

~ Slowly she turns and *smiled* < That just sorta bugged me, 'cause I didn't get why you switched tenses. Figured I'd point it out in case it was a mistake. ^_^

That's pretty cool... methinks me liked it. The mental image I got at "Slowly she turns and smiled/Hands out, murmuring softly" was just precious. Not to say that the whole thing didn't invoke a very fluid picture. ^_^ The broken line sorta style you used here really worked for me... who needs a sentence, when a word will do? Very cool. Don't think I've actually seen this style, before... but I like it. ^_^ *applause*

:-) Rochelle Leya Watts replies: "Ooops. Never noticed that. ::::laughs::: And I wrote this when I was thirteen or so, you'd think I'd have seen this by now."

Another good poem. I had to sit with this one for a while, and chew it with my unconscious for a bit. (the same way I read haiku) The poem puts you in a scene. This would probably go well with a story.

:-) Rochelle Leya Watts replies: "I love that you compared it to haiku. My face is probably going all red. Thanks, hon. "

Leaving the reader to wonder - what was the favour and what the gift? ^_^ Grrrr! This needs a sister poem to give us a glimse of what comes next.
