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.
