the fog lifts...
yet figments and fancies
linger

Have a great St. Patrick's Day and include a visit to Life on the Deckle Edge, where Robyn is holding today's Round-Up.

  2. Happy St. Patrick's Day, Diane! I usually get the whole Round Up together before going back to leave comments, but this little bit o' Magic was too enticing not to leave a green sprinkle or two in the comment box in the moment... LOVE!

  4. Such an evocative poem presented so beautifully! I can feel the magic and ancient traditions. I hope good leprechauns visit and sprinkle the luck of the Irish upon you.

    1. I like to think that all leprechauns are good ones, they just happen to have a lot of harmless mischief in them.

    1. I missed out on the corned beef and cabbage, but I know a diner that makes great corned beef hash. Maybe Sunday...

  9. You are a work of art, Diane. (Also, I love that musical score. Climbing through a barbed wire fence often feels a lot like that.)

  10. Love this fun imagery and poem! I'm wondering what mischief that character is going to be stirring up next . . . Hope you had a lovely St. Patty's Day!
