Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge… #Double Etheree #Poetry

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge

Colleen is not yet back in circulation, but we post this double etheree in her honour!

cropped-the-faery-whisperer-5

 

old

magic

spells I found

hocus pocus

written in red ink

by foolish minds in need

from dark fancy born at night

dreams gone wrong by wish for power

time guards all sorcery that it owns

your mind alone  will never write the spell

your own illusion brings you back to hell

your spell was written with crooked pen

the devil waits to call you in

the wish made while heart was black

returns, a tenfold smack

forgive your mistake

make one right wish

for your life

to turn

back.

AAAAA
