My genre: Fantasy

Sorry for the short, and non-story entry this week. It was all I could manage. I think I drained myself during NaNoWriMo, as nothing would come. And I’e had toothache all day, and yesterday. I basically stared at what I had written earlier and hated every word. It wasn’t good. So, consider this an interlude. 🙂 Normal service will hopefully be resumed next week.

Here’s my entry for this week:


In fallow fields
Under starry skies
The fairies dance
Their enchanting dance

Trails of magic
Silver dust in the air
Floats and enchants
As they dance their dance

Returning life to the land
New power to grow
Spring shoots take their chance

After all,
Life is a dance of chance.

  1. I know that drained, burnt out feeling. I hope you feel better soon, and your tooth ache goes away.
    This is a great poem, btw! I don’t know how you managed it while feeling unwell. You deserve applause. 🙂

    1. Thanks. 🙂 I don’t know how I did it either. My tooth is better.

      But I’ve just managed to delete one of your comments somehow. 😦 I am so sorry. I don’t know how I managed it. My neverending keyboard clumsiness combine with not really knowing how to work WP half the time. Thank you fo the comment on my FridayPhrases post. It was lovely. And the writer’s imagination is something I think most can relate to.

      1. I’m glad your tooth is better. 🙂 And don’t worry about the comments. I’ve accidentally missed some comments from people and they’re lost, *sigh*. It happens with WordPress.
