The Crows

I had a dream last night,
that I stood in a field of pure white wheat,
and it swayed and bowed to the will of the wind.
The sky grew angry and started to cry.
The wheat wilted and rotted away.
Underneath the wheat,
crows had been hiding,
and now hundreds of them
spread their wings and took to the sky,
turning day to night.

The stars came out,
yawned and stretched.
They saw me standing, watching,
and one by one started to sing.
In the middle of the field,
a tree began to play music,
like a music box without the ballerina.
The tree started flowering the whitest of roses,
and the petals fell in time with the tune.
Each petal had a message.
Written in black ink,
"Vous et nul autre”

So here I am! Still alive and on the wrong side of 30 now!

I had a lovely day - I felt thoroughly spoilt! I still have my cards up and also a big balloon that says '30 & fab'.

I hope you like 'The Crows' I realised that it hadn't been on my blog and was shocked when I worked out that it's about 5 or 6 years old now! Where has the time gone? I wrote this in 2009 or 2010 I can't remember exactly. It's one of my favourites from 'Silver Threads', I love the imagery and darkness in 'The Crows'. The last line 'Vous et nul autre' I found in a book, it means 'You and no other'.

I have finished my new collection 'Alchemy' and its been entered into a competition, which I'll not mention because if it doesn't make it then I can pretend it never happened! There is method in my madness!

If it doesn't make it I'll be making it into an ebook if I can get my head around it all. I have had so much love, support and encouragement from my Mum and Carl while doing 'Alchemy', also the editing skills and friendship of Morgen Bailey has been wonderful :) 

Have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend.
