Poetry Friday ~ Enchant & Fly

13 Sep

Hi, everyone! Happy Friday the 13th!

Enchant and Fly are this week’s prompt words chosen by Colleen Chesebro ~ The Fairy Whisperer.

*The catch is that we can only use the synonyms to these words in our poems.

Colleen hosts a challenge that anyone could participate in called,ย Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge every Tuesday, and you have until Sunday to create a post featuring your Haiku, Tanka, Haibun, Etheree or Cinquain poem. She is an author and poet, and also does book reviews and so much more on her blog. Be sure to check it out.

Artist Luis Royo

Can You Hold A Burning Star?

Proud Elven Princess
dazzles with beauty and charm
She’ll capture your soul
You may think you’ve won her heart
til she swoops and slits your throat

Fantasy Artist Luis Royo

Thank you for visiting!

      Hi, Jan! I’m glad you appreciate the poem. The Elven warrior princess simply wants respect but if you underestimate her or try to take advantage they’ll never find your body. Ha, ha! Thank you, my friend!
