The Bronze Book Fairy
Posted by Ali zonak - 11-16-20 17:47 - 0 comments

Ana, my bronze book fairy, rests there
propped up on her elbows, and reads
a book. By day she mindlessly stares
at pages that never change.

But at night, when I doze in my easy chair,
she rises and flits about on softest wings
and scents the air with exotic blossoms
that form a crown upon her brow.

That is when she scatters fairy dust
about my cozy study, and though my dogs
may stir, all remains quiet throughout
the house. Tonight she whisks me away
to a foreign land: Cappadocia, Turkey—

Fairy chimneys and strange cones
with natural caves catch my eye. Until recently,
they had been homes to humans, even those
that lived there when misguided Crusaders passed
through on their way to the Holy Land.
But before that time, only fairies of my Ana’s
kind lived there. Now they have returned.

I gaze at countless pigeons nesting in stone
cavities and on shelves, flying back
and forth, in and out, with wings stretched
forth, gliding effortlessly, buoyed by Turkey’s
hottest winds. But at closer look, each plump
bird takes on my Ana’s fairy form; fragile—almost
too delicate to touch for fear that a wing might break.

These are my kin, Ana says, and I
wonder whether she misses her sister’s
company. I offer her freedom, but she says,
I am bound to you as long as you may live.

My grandfather clock strikes midnight,
and I receive another dose of magic dust
that makes me sneeze, and then
I open up my eyes. Ana goes on to read
her book; but that will be a story for another night.

Parallel Mini Story
Posted by Rhymer - 11-12-20 06:56 - 16 comments

Knowing Psyche has computer woes from time to time, and as I could find no connection between the ongoing original Mini Story and Psyche's words, yet thinking them ideal for making a new story line, decided to start this topic. After posting I checked that all was well, and left the site. Checking back later, it along with all my negotiating unknown waters to set it up, it hadf seemingly vanished into thin air some time later. But notwithstanding all the angst etc. I felt, decided nothing ventured, nothing gained, would suffice, so here it is again! Now I a Am waiting to see what happens this time. Please feel free to comment. Rhymer.

The following is Psyche's original list of words and her Chapter - copied and pasted, followed by my own Chapter hoping someone will continue with this secondary Mini Story. Ciao for now. Rhymer.

Birgitta, Prime Minister of Denmark
jealousy
Queen Mary
chapstick
rhino
enchanting
Run a mile
Desert Altiplano Atacama
Juan Diego Florez
tramp

Birgitta ,Prime Minister of Denmark (probably only the second woman to obtain that position,) is travelling on the Crown Suite of the Queen Mary when her lips became sorely chapped, so the Steward rushed off to get her some chapstick for the Royal lips, a product of the best quality. He happenned to be a very jealous person, so Birgitta invited Juan Diego Florez to sing for all the crew and all high and low "classes" of passengers.
One of the sailors found a stowaway down among the machinery. He was actually very dirty and drunk, as is usual with the lost tramps.
The Steward used to run a mile many times before he new onboard career on the Queen Mary.
Many years ago I was roaming around the Atacama Altiplano when I saw a tiger. I thought they were only native to Africa, India and so on. Could it have been a vision? I decided that I was not going to a high profile psyciatrist and have my brain washed. Not for me, so I said nothing to any of my friends and just moved to another town.


jealousy
rhino
enchanting
chapstick
Juan Diego Florez
Arabian stallions
whales
Rumi
diploma
measles

Whilst recovering from a bad bout of Measles, I had cause to use a Chapstick of salve to help heal my oft scratched sores. Measles being a disease that can prove fatal, I had for a time entered the realms of delerium and fantasy, where I had been roaming the Juan Diego Florez region. Here my delerium had me witness the antics of a Rhino who, consumed by Jealousy, chased Arabian Stallions along the shores of the Atlantic. A place where a pod of Killer Whales, in an unusual Enchanting manner were listening to the rhythmic poetry of Rumi, as he extolled the virtues of Me being awarded a Diploma for my extremely virtuoso talents. It was at that moment I returned to reality However, for a moment, I had basked in the glory Measles had awarded me. But wondered I? Would Mumps be so kind, were I to contract them? Doubtful. Rhymer.
