Writers Quote Wednesday – BELIEVE

27 Jul

Hello everyone! A warm welcome to my blog. Thanks for stopping by. First, I wanted to apologize for not having a ‘Haiku Friday’ post last week. Sometimes life happens and takes you by surprise and your time is no longer yours. I hope to make up for it this week.

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge is sponsored by Colleen Chesebro of Silver Threading and Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes. Anyone can participate by choosing a quote by a favorite writer then, write a short piece of flash fiction or poetry to share with us all. You can include photos, photo quotes, or anything else that helps to highlight your quote. Have fun with it! I don’t know this week’s theme because I had to work on this post before this week’s theme was chosen, so I chose my own. I chose BELIEVE in honor of my friend Colleen Chesebro who has recently revealed the book cover to her first book, The Heart Stone Chronicles – Book 1: The Swamp Fairy  In her post she gives a fascinating account of the day she encountered a fairy.

In her words . . .

I heard a sound that instantly caught my attention. At first, I thought it might be an injured bird rustling in the thick underbrush. I peered into the foliage and drew back in surprise. Read on here.


“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

~Audrey Hepburn

“The fairy poet takes a sheet
Of moonbeam, silver white;
His ink is dew from daisies sweet,
His pen a point of light.”

~Joyce Kilmer

“We call them faerie. We don’t believe in them. Our loss.”

~Charles de Lint


Watch all nature’s things

There are fairies in the air

Breathing loveliness

To inspire the blushing rose

Raindrops are like fairy breaths

~Vashti Q

Spread your wings and let your inner fairy fly!

      Aww. I’m so happy you liked the post, Colleen. I’m not blaming you in any way. My online time has been in such short supply lately that I have to do things whenever I get a moment. I’m happy you’re using ‘believe’ as your theme––it’s so you. Thank you! ❤ xx

    I believe in faeries and surround myself with them all the time for inspiration and to remind me there is always magic afoot. Beautiful pictures and quotes, Vashti.
