Fairies and Fairy Tales via Brenda Arledge's Prompt

I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.

Frank Sinatra - Young at Heart

Brenda Arldge has inspired many of us to write poetry based on her prompts. I have been writing poetry for about six weeks and have enjoyed it immensely. It calls on our thoughts, ideas and our creativity to write poems, but they tend to come from the heart most of the time.

I have always liked poetry, and I wrote poetry when I was in school. I wish I had continued to write, but I did not until recently. It is significantly different from writing informational articles. I enjoy writing both.

Acrostic Poem

Female spirit with magic powers

A supernatural being impowers

If you believe she will appear

Random fairy dust will be near

You can choose to believe

Fairy Tales

The magic of a fairy tale

To many a child’s delight,

Spending hours with a book

Makes their little minds bright

If only you believe


Tinker Bell is a fairy we know

She uses that magic fairy dust,

We saw her at the movies

She flies with a windy gust

If only you believe


Peter Pan is just a boy

Who refuses to grow up,

He loves living in Neverland

Tinker Bell, the only grownup

If only you believe

Fairy Tales - Anita Baker

Fairies

Enchanted being a fairy is

She flits about to and fro

She uses magic fairy dust

You can surely see it glow

If only you believe


The fairy dust is magical

Fairies use it to mend and heal,

They make your wish come true

Her goals are the very best deal

If only you believe


Fairy tales are true you see

Cinderella and Snow White,

Stories that the children love

As they finally see the light

If only you believe

I always loved the fairy tale books when I was a child and also when reading them to my children. A beautiful imaginary world sounds nice.

I appreciate your comments. Hope you are having a good day.

Hello Pamela!

Beautiful response to the word prompt challenge by Brenda.

I do believe in fairies and remember all the fairy tales, which I had read in my childhood. Those were lovely times. No worries, just a beautiful imaginary World.

Your poems are sweet and well crafted. Thank you for sharing this.

Hi Brenda,

Thank you Brenda for your feedback. I thought of all those stories that had fairies and some magic. When I first saw this prompt I didn't think I could use it, then thoughts came flowing in. I enjoyed this one.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 07, 2021:

Cheryl...

I did see your poem on Jesus...something about your name.

It is a very good & inspirational piece.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 07, 2021:

Pamela,

These are exceptional.

I love the first one. The acrostic poem.

All of them tie together with the theme, If only you believe.

You remind us of Tinker Bell & Peter Pan and the magic of Cinderella.

I will post a link on the article.

Nothing's like when it comes from the ones who really knows how to address it with the the heart. (I've put my heart into my work too, but it's so different when it comes from grandmas) It's so so good to read it. Thank you so much po from my heart.

manatita44 from london on April 07, 2021:

Pamela you made it simple, charming ... enchanting. Just like fairies. Cute! Kudos to the prompter Brenda.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 07, 2021:

These poems are delightful, Pamela. It is fun thinking about stories like Cinderella and Snow White. Why not believe in fairies? That is also fun.

Pamela Oglesby (author) from Sunny Florida on April 07, 2021:

Hi Ann,

I like mystical and magical too, and I thought about all those stories I read to my children and ones I read.

I appreciate your comments, Ann. I hope you are having a good week.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 07, 2021:

Absolutely charming, Pamela! I certainly believe; why wouldn't we all? Something magical and mystical is always worth a story and a belief, especially for children (of any age!).
