Secrets/Heaven and Earth/Poetry

Secrets Pssst… sweet cherub,   may I borrow your wings? Oh, no, my Mother would be angry. Can you teach me to swim in the pond, little frog? Oh no, your lovely wings would be covered in mud!

Revealed Beneath the moon, my soul revealed, the shadows fall away. No need to hide the wounds inside cowering before the day. Delicate touch, the Goddess caress, to heal the bleeding heart.

Cool me now, as I dance with you, a lilting gypsy tune and sail away with the stars that play in the house of Silver Moon. Cheryl KP copyright photo and words 2014 Continue reading Revealed

Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion by Cheryl Pennington copyright 2014 As the Sorceress works to regain her composure, the new arrivals carry on in their usual bickering fashion.  Who are these strange males, where did they come from, and-more importantly-what is their intent as they wander across Domhan? Pleased to Meet You “Did Eolas send you here?” the irritated Sorceress questioned, looking from one to the other, waiting for a response, and not caring at all who answered.   Both of them looked quizzically at each other, then stared, open-mouthed, at the Sorceress. They shrugged in an ‘I don’t know’ fashion … Continue reading Pleased to Meet You
