The Usurper – Trifextra Week 84

This weekend, the Trifecta team’s Trifextra challenge asks us to write 33 words including Tether, Loft and Crown in the tales tht we weave.

Why not visit here to read all the brilliant offerings?! Or, take part yourself….

Here’s my little tale below. Enjoy!

*****

– The Usurper –

The tether encircling my neck is delicate yet iron-strong.

I am secluded in my loft – it is my haven.

Nobody comes

– except my master, adorned with his crown.

All power is mine.

Hide and Seek – Trifextra Week 83

This weekend, the Trifecta team’s Trifextra challenge asks us to take a trip back in time to our school days, and write a haiku, on any subject.

I’ve spent this week in the fabulous countryside of Ceredigion (mid-Wales), and have been inspired. This afternoon, we watched red kites descend on the lake at Bwlch Nant Yr Arian, which is a nature reserve managed by the Forestry Commission and the RSPB (a charity dedicated to the care and conservation of bird life in the UK).

Anyway, here is my haiku – I do enjoy trying to convey feelings, thoughts and ideas in such a limited number of syllables (5-7-5).

bird soars high above

mists gather, blanket on trees

 mouse hides, small secret

The Night Sky Lullaby – Trifextra Week 82

This weekend, the Trifecta team’s Trifextra challenge asks us to write only 33 words which they can share with their children in the bedtime story routine. No scary, nightmare-inducing tales allowed!

I’ll share a slice of my family life with you.  I have a much younger brother (who has just graduated from university) who loved the moon when he was a scrumptious little boy. This is the second time I have written a creative piece inspired by him – take a look over here to see what I wrote!

Anyway, I have turned a bit soft and gooey again this week – my muse seems to have unleashed my soft underbelly. Make the most of it, before normal service is resumed 🙂

– The Night Sky Lullaby –

Our friend Mr Moon shines so brightly tonight
He bathes your bed in sweetest, soft light
He smiles gently upon you, the whole night long
As Mr Nightingale sings you his lullaby song.
