Spikes of Spring

Spikes of Spring are springing and spiking everywhere now. Plus the fact we are going through another mini heatwave with temperatures spiking once again helps things a little!

Owing to last week’s sudden heatwave, the bluebells are now starting to show. Spiky leaves have suddenly exploded onto the scene, adding more greenery to behold.

Palace of Light

The Great Moon Palace
Glistens in the Winter Snow
Cutting through the dark

After the journey
Crook lit and cloak protected
It’s good to be home

Winter still holds us
But soon the season will pass
As Spring’s thaw arrives

The Great Moon Palace
Will welcome the Summer Sun
And stand in the Light

Weekly challenge

Hélène has once again provided another fabulous image for her ‘What Do You See’ challenge. I’ve added a link to her post in the badge above, so you can read more takes on this prompt, should you so desire!

Another Sunrise

The child cuddled the fox until the Sun rose.

The fox’s paw was now healed, after the child had released it from a trap in a nearby field, and bathed it in a magical light, the colour of the Moon, from her own hands.

When the Sun was fully in the sky, the child released the fox, who playfully licked the child’s cheek before bouncing off through the flowers in the clearing.

The fox looked back just in time to see the child rise into the sky, her wings now outstretched.

Archangel Ariel smiled as the fox rejoined her cubs.


The Bag Lady (Cheryl) recently asked me to write something based on the above picture, so this is my response, in a hundred words.
