I hope you enjoy this bit of white magic from Lavender Moon Girl to break up the week. Have lovely days, everyone! Warmly, Brenda
Lavender Moon: Artist, Poet and Lover of Nature
Masquerading veiled fairies
Dance in a cascading
As radiant stamens
Parade their flames.
The dogs and I love to walk in our local nature reserve; I call it the Fairy Woodland because it really is a special place to sit and enjoy magical moments such as the delicate scent of mingled blossom from a dew drop, a tiny Blue butterfly sunning its wings on a buttercup, a cuckoo and at dusk the eerie cry of a barn owl.
Happy first day of June everyone. 🙂
Spot on Brenda about the horses mane. And good luck with your new book PP. 🙂
Excellent! Good to know I can still read poetry and get it right. 🙂 Been a long time since my college courses.
This was such a lovely parade of veiled fairies in masquerade. I am pondering the word, “mane” in this and need to check back if you can explain this meaning to me, dear Brenda.
A horse’s mane is the long hair along its neck. I assume this refers to the way the flowers drape along a branch. So she is both looking at each flower, but also at the whole fall of flowers.
Thanks for helping to interpret lavender girl’s beautiful way of expressing herself.
I forgothink about a horse’s manE
I took a stab at it, but only the poet knows for sure!
Just handed in a rewrite to my agent about a fairy mystery novel – so at the moment my brain is ALL THINGS FAIRY.
Loved the post, Brenda. 😉
How cool! Do you have a publisher or is that the next step?
Yep. That’s all done and dusted. This book is a 2nd in a two book contract, but I run all finals through the eagle eyes of my agent before sending off the manuscript to my editor. Saves a lot of time which editors seem to be in short supply of lately.
Wow, congrats!! I hope to get there one day myself.
