Shelter


With kaleidoscope eyes,
and faerie's wings,
we slipped between
its satin sheets

Flipping like mermaids
in our deep

I also wanted to thank Vesper and Billy for honoring me with the Arte y Pico award. Both are beautiful writers whose blogs are peaceful shelters in a sometimes stormy day.

I would honor five other bloggers, but in all honesty, most of my selections have been similarly awarded.

Thanks, guys!!

Awwww Sarah. Lovely, reminds me of Cicely Mary Barker's Flower fairies; and, congratulations!

Yay! A cool macro shot!

Very tasty. And touched by the afternoon sunlight.

The deeper those fantasy-like times reach, the rarer.

Sheri said...

Congratulations on your award!

That is awesome.

And I really loved your poem.

Sarah Hina said...

Thanks, Jaye...I probably should have passed it on.

Ruth, we have some of those books. My daughter likes them. :) Definitely the fairy perspective in this one. Thank you!

True, Jason. I came upon this little guy at exactly the right moment. The next afternoon, he was gone.

I think lawn mowers must be a fairy's worst nightmare...maybe bees, too. ;)

Thanks, Sheri! And good to see you again. :) This poem was childlike in its simplicity, and fun to write.

Sheri said...

Yeah, sorry I've been out of sight for a while... summer just really cuts into my writing/blogging time!!! But I still love it. Love the sunny warmth, the easy schedules, the no-loads-of-school-papers littering my counters, and, of course, having my girls home.

congrats!!!

Aine said...

Flipping like mermaids in our deep, indeed! You've captured the perspective of a faerie.

I love imagining the possibilities of such a perspective.

Fun!
:)

Sarah Hina said...

I understand, Sheri. And I'm still feeling guilty about never writing you back. Things have gotten away from me...but that's a shabby excuse.

I'm loving this summer, too. And I'll be sure to stop by your blog to catch up with you. :)

Thanks, Hotwire!

Yes, Aine...this one was very whimsical to write. :)

The photo could have been better (oh, Photoshop, how you are already stealing my precious time ;)), but I loved how the folds of the mushroom also spoke of the sea.

Barbara Martin said...

Lovely poetry and the photo.

Sheri said...

Honestly Sarah, I couldn't remember who last emailed whom,(who, whom... I can never remember that grammar rule for some reason...) Anyway, do not give it a second thought!

Sarah Hina said...

Thank you, Barbara. I appreciate your coming by!

Thanks, Sheri, but it was me. I'm going to your blog now...

And your "whom" was just right. ;)

Charles Gramlich said...

Amazing. How did you get that pic? I has such an architectural structure.

Sarah Hina said...

On my belly, Charles, that's how. ;) Luckily for me, it had a long stem.

It is impossible to match the pureness of nature's beauty.

Thanks for coming by!

Vesper said...

Beautiful poem! And I absolutely love the picture - I adore mushrooms of any kind and in any form! :-)

... just another example of why you deserve so much the Peak of Art award... :-)
