Poem: Magic Writing

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Word Prompt = Fairy

I'm not sure what I was thinking this week when I decided on the weekly word prompt.

This prompt on "Fairy" is a bit challenging to say the least.

I am amazed at all the writing that is being created. We definitely have magic.

I finally got mine done. I hope you enjoy it.

Poem Summary

Magic writing is a poem about writer's block. She goes to sleep praying for this lack of inspiration to go away. She wakes up in a magic forest where a Fairy sprinkles pixie dust. A poem magically appears in the sky but then she wakes up disappointed, realizing it was a dream. Or was it?

Magic Writing

Stuck in a mind frame of yesterday

nothing concrete to scribble with my pen

I turn the light out and crawl beneath the covers.


I pray for this lack of inspiration to disappear

letting my fingers jot down the perfect ink

then I drift off fast to sleep


I wake up in a magic forest where a tiny bluebird calls my name

while I sit on a giant mushroom watching pink and purple butterflies

when a woman, no bigger than the palm of my hand with flowing brown hair, lands on my shoulder

with her soft, whispery, velvet like wings, the colors of a rainbow that glitter like gold.


Quick as a flash, this tiny fairy sprinkles pixie dust

then with just the touch of her hand to the starry night sky

elegant, descriptive phrases magically appear,

as I sit in a daze, reading the most beautiful poem I have ever read.


Suddenly I feel my legs stir,

shaking my head, I sit up in my own bed realizing it was a dream

I reach for a bottle of water from the night stand

when my eyes see a piece of paper with scribbles.


Imagine my surprise!

It’s the poem written in the sky,

penned in my name.

Have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on April 08, 2021:

Peggy,

Sorry...I probably didn't get this poem worded quite right.

Glad you liked it anyways.

Take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on April 08, 2021:

Alyssa,

I try to keep all those little snippets, but I misplace them sometimes.

We all need a bit of magic now & then.

Thank you for enjoying my poem.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 08, 2021:

For a moment, I thought that you were the fairy sitting on a giant mushroom. That must have been some mushroom! A cute poem, Brenda!

Alyssa from Ohio on April 08, 2021:

What a beautiful and fun poem Brenda! I wish I had a magical fairy to visit me in my dreams when inspiration and creativity elude me. When I was younger, I was fascinated by dreams. I kept a notebook and pen beside my bed to jot down everything I remembered when I woke, looking for clues and answers to life's conundrums. Nowadays I utilize my notes app for everything, but it's especially helpful to record little snippets of ideas that pop into my head throughout the day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on April 08, 2021:

Misbah,

Thank you.

Maybe later I can revise it, but I wanted to put something out there.

Glad you enjoyed my poetry.

Take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on April 08, 2021:

John,

I figure I need to write a poem for these word prompts too.

I keep a notebook handy too, but sometimes I just jot down a few lines on my mobile phone.

Let's hope we both get some inspiration.

Mine's been lacking lately...maybe the nice weather.

Take care.

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on April 08, 2021:

Brenda, It was a fun read. I can feel the imagination you were trying to portray. I enjoyed reading it. I wish in my life, if I could see a real fairy with naked eyes. I would not mind a note written by a fairy too---- haha

I have read the poems you mentioned above in comments too. All are very nice.

Blessings always

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on April 08, 2021:

It is always nice to read your own take on your weekly prompts, Brenda. I like your poems, and I too wish those fairies would sprinkle pixie dust on me at night to help my writing inspiration. I do keep a pen and paper next to my bed in case I have an idea to jot down or wake during a dream. All the best.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on April 08, 2021:

Pamela,

Thank you.

Have a great day!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 08, 2021:

I love your other poems, Brenda. You are so talented.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on April 08, 2021:

Ann,

Jusf a little bit of magic would be nice.

Maybe I can find me a fairy in my flowerbeds.

Take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on April 08, 2021:

Ann,

Thanks.

That made ne laugh!

I've done things like that before too.

It anazes me when I can't even read my own hand writing.

Have a great day.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 08, 2021:

Lovely, Brenda! I'd like a few fairies to give me ideas from time to time, when the muse refuses!

At least you had better luck than my Dad - he wrote down something he'd dreamt, in the middle of the night, thinking that it would be there to be read in the morning. He went off to sleep, woke up refreshed, and found that all he had written down was gobbledygook!

Good that you've broken your writer's block now.

Ann
