Poetry Contest

Write a poem about what life is like as a real witch, who lives among nature in the deep forrest

Silver Bells & Spells


 † †
In the thick † † † †
of a frosted forrest † † †  
at the base † † † †
of a swollen oak tree † † † †
a snowy owl mother † †
nourishes her babies † † †  
† † † †
a few feet away † † † †
I stand bewitched † † † †
having made it † † † †
this far † †  
content inside † † †  
a winter wonderland † † † †
I am † † † †
in awe † † † †
† † † †
the circle † † † †
of life † † † †
never † † † †
gets old† † †  
In all Itís magic † † †   † † †  
stories unfold † †
but left untold † † † †
† † † †
It seems only fair † † †  
I mention my flair † † †  
I am witch, † † † †
and I too † † † †
live in † † † †
the forrest † † †  
† † † †
Potions & spells † † † †
broomsticks & bells † † †  
I dwell, in a place † † †  
time has forgotten
† † †

Into the wood stream

From sylvan frequencies is born
All mother singing synched songs, torn
her staff bears mammal blood †
I hum these words as a flood †
  
of vital healing visions open with might †
fox gloved raven hymns invoke true plight †
we who are fairer than sunrays †
have golden tongues kindling our ways †
†  
Knowledge covered in ferns †
disguised demon dwarf yearns †
a riddle for a riddle an eye †
as we adorn this sky †
†  
Oh Draco I shall lay down under the beeches †
awaiting silver sickled teachings †
We will crown each tree a king †
their hair like copper falling, sing †
†  
oh sing, Let us dwell a riverbank †
a dragon's lair beseeches me as we drank †
nectar falls in nine ripples gather still †
we name the nameless ghost †
a cats eye nebula is our host †
†  
Dellingr beloved, my vixen one †
mingle blood of dawn , until †
until †  
it' †
is †
done

A-hem I must contain my excitement ☺️
A-hem * cought-cought-* bravo Rianne way to set the bar! I liked how you used both rhyme scheme and almost rhyme playing off each other it worked like a well fitted glove well done.
Good luck

That boat house on the bayou

Darkness stills all moving mouths,
allows the night to feed,
cypress trees with calf like legs
dredge deep inside black water.

Daughters of the riverboats
float evening mist on silver moss
lost souls that search for candle light
fight inside the troubled murk.

Covert creatures call out names
tamed by broken legs and stones,
grown weathered as the greying slats
lapped tight to form wood walls.

Fall foul of a monsters running cry
try to conjure bold self belief
meet my bleeding unstitched lips
sip life from those who call me witch.

Witch in the wilderness

Deep in the forest,
Echoes consumed,
Chanting of evil  
under the moon,
 
Rotting bodies of  
Missing children  
organs removed  
Boiling in a cauldron
 
Living off the land,
At one with mother earth  
Gathering her offerings,
To Conjure up another curse
 
I call up on the powers
Of witches long past.....
 
*Remove the chains  
of time and space,
And let my spirit soar,
Let these Mortal arms embrace,
The life that haunts before*  
 
Causing a commotion,  
Sadistic with no emotion  
She concocts another potion,
Wicked witch devotion

Under the Pale Moon Light

 
She dances naked under the pale moon light
Around the fire invoking energy from the night
And as the flames sway she prays with quite delight
The bright embers seem like dreams that take flight

And while the cinders fly off into the night air
Her body moves to the lively rhythm of the flame
Her fair skin glows along with her red flowing hair
Like fiery cascades - picture perfect in every frame

She raises her hands upward with a joyous grin
Then tilts her head upward looking up at the moon
The cool breeze caresses every inch of her skin
As her lips utter chants and ancient hallowed tunes

She listens with her heart, she listens with her soul
Every crackle is an expression of jovial and sacred rite
In the clearing amidst the forest trees thereís a threshold
Where she dances naked under the pale moon light

Grounded


Set intentions
On the eve of rain
Heaven sent
Quenched again

I dance to collect
Waters that cleanse
Encased in prism
The serum within

The found amethyst
The fount of clouds
The cards, the stars
The life abounds

In the verdancy
My spirit is found
Bonds in the paws
The blooms profound

The most practical of magics
Of hands in the earth,
The only repose known
Since the time of my birth
