Creative Writing Experiment – continued

I thought I wold take this task on once again and offer out to my facebook friends to lend me a line or phrase and I would in turn make that line or phrase into a poem or story for them.
Here’s how the experiment continued:

1) “The dragon silently wept.”

The dragon silently wept as the world before him slipped away
The days of soaring the skies without fear would have to wait until another day

The change brought about a sadness he’d never known
A great nothingness exists now where the trees had once grown

The wind that had once roared through the mountains, trees and hills
Now at a deadly standstill

The dragon silently wept as the world before him was now unknown

2) “The mermaid glanced at the distant shore.”

The mermaid glanced at the distant shore
Remembering the days from before

A longing inside her stirred
A glimpse of someone walking and then the flight of a bird

Scales and fins kept her from the land
Knowing her walk could only be upon the ocean’s sand

Her fantasies rang of journeys beyond the water’s edge
To walk, to fly, to run … in her next life, this was her pledge.

The mermaid glanced at the distant shore
Longing for something more.

3) “ as the sky turned to a vivid shade of purple the dragonflies appeared over the horizon”

As the sky turned to a vivid shade of purple the dragonflies appeared over the horizon, I knew a message was clearly on its way. A message from where? From whom? About what? I was sure to find out soon. Oh dear, this message seems to be quite encrypted. It feels like I am to understand something, but I am at a loss. I ask, please my dragonfly friends, can you take this pen and paper and just state the obvious for I am blind to the message you bring. Suddenly a dragonfly lands upon my shoulder and I knew. It was as if a connection was finally made and we shared thoughts. I felt a peace overtake me and I settled in for the message to be delivered. What came next was unexpected and yet comforting. There wasn’t any sort of contrived message about “do this” or “do that” the message was simply of love and that I am not alone.. no matter how distant from the world I may feel.. I am not. We are all connected and that connection is love.

4) “A single snowflake landed on the window pane”

A single snowflake landed on the window pane today
I longed for the days when all I had to do was go out and play

Remembering way back when
Running with arms stretched, pretending to glide upon the wind

Spinning in circles round and round
Playing hopscotch and drawing squares upon the ground

Puddles became the ocean and old logs became the pirate’s plank
All my pennies were stored safely in a piggy bank

No worries and no cares
Comforting hugs from teddy bears

A single snowflake landed on the window pane today
So who else wants to join me and go outside to play?

I hope you enjoy this play with words 🙂

Many Blessings,
Raventalker
