Witch Words

 

Narrator:

‘What does the word witch mean?’ 

Me:

Face lights up … ‘Literally speaking’, it is the use of spelling.

 

WORD WITCHES:

Incorporate witchcraft into their writing and consider morning writing rituals as a form of magic. They usually research their own passions and interests. The Word Witch will very often have their own writing portal in their library, to practice their craft. They don’t always just use the library though. Many enjoy watching earthlings and taking long road trips in nature, as they scribble notes to take back to their sacred hub, to conjure word spells.

For the Love of Poetry

For the Love of Poetry

When pens, words and hearts collide,
her soul sends messages divined.
Woven jewels, sparkling delights,
spellings cast of magical inner sights.

Weaving rhythms, waves and patterns,
dancing tunes, of lyrics of passions.
For the love of poetry, her spirit runs free, 
if I didn’t write, i wouldn’t be true, to me.

March Musings

MARCH, MUSING

In Numerology, the month of March represents;

Three ~ Creative Expression.

Q: What is creativity?

A: The relationship between a human being and the mysteries of inspiration. 

~ Elizabeth Gilbert. Author of Big Magic

Nothing is more important this month, than to be free to use your imagination to beautify and create. Whatever you do, take time to express yourself!

Keep the spirit of your inner child alive, and be magickal and playful. Communicate straight from your heart. No wet blankets this month. 

Because life is fun and there are so many things to do, imagine and see.  You may have three things on the go this month. Find ways to express your emotions and slow down long enough to focus on the moment. Try not to scatter your energy and pizzaz  around in too many directions. 

Laughter is healthful for your soul, so seek a steady diet of wit and humour. 

Focus on your breath rising, as you listen, think and feel in this moment. Once you have a strong sense of new energy; visualise your intention. Bring that which has never been seen, into being, by the power of your creativity in all of its forms. 

Your March MANTRA should be:

“I do what makes me happy”

March Mission:

A wise man once said:

“In both writing and sleeping, we learn to be physically still at the same time we are encouraging our minds to unlock from the humdrum rational thinking of our daytime lives.”

Who am I?

WHO AM I?
 I am, temporal lobe epilepsy,
 society’s “invisible” disease.
 You won’t know about me,
 until, I fall down to my knees.
 

 Many think that, this is a curse,
 shunned and turned away in history,
 No ‘understanding’ which is worse.
 

 There are famous people who had this:
 did you know?
 Pythagoras, Socrates, Vincent Van Gogh,
 Lewis Carroll, and the lists begin to grow!
 

 My Doctor said: “This can be a ‘blessing,
 if you manage; “personality traits carefully’
 To all of those, with this ‘sacred disease’
 learn about the epilepsy positives please.

Personality Traits
 “Individuals with temporal lobe epilepsy, share a tendency to increased and extensive drawing or writing often of a cosmic or philosophical nature” Dr Bear called this tendency “Hypergraphia” ~ Tom Valeo ~ Neurology Today
 'Seized' ~ Eve LaPlante

Words Without End

WORDS WITHOUT END

Attentively waiting, tilting head,
listening in, to what is being said. 
You can’t pick a topic, a topic picks you,
a prompting of words, rushing through.

Happy, sad, funny or amusing,
you’ll find there is no choosing.
Then Bingo! out of the blue,
new dialog comes flowing through.

You’ll know just what to write,
sitting quietly, hearing inner sights. 
Words will not come on command,
or writing will be boring and bland.

Words from the spirit of heart, 
is where to make a new start. 
Within those words without end,
quickly rush to grab your pen.

Mark my words!

“Sssh” he said, “now don’t you cry”

as he took her by the shoulders,

she reluctantly, met his eyes.

 

She said, “There is something I need to question,

here, that I would like to mention;

Can you please, stop and explain,

your breaks and separations”? she exclaimed

 

Turning away, she dropped down to her knees,

pleading repeatedly, “Can you help me, please?”

Muddled in helplessness, tears and sorrow,

she wondered, if he had actually known?

 

Flicking the hair out of her eyes,

trying to put, all of this together, in her mind.

Vulnerable and confused,

she didn’t know what to do.

 

Hatefully proud and not wanting to ask,

how she should accomplish this uncertain task.

She enquired, “Should I  punctuate or not”?

I get all nervous, if I get it wrong, or I’ve forgot.

 

“Do commas, hyphens and apostrophes still belong?

It seems to me, that some are ignored, misused, or wrong.

These ‘points’ make sense, of what I’m trying to say,

Mark my words… Don’t take the punctuations away”!

Mark my words…

“Punctuation marks are like road signs; without them we just may get lost… Those who disagree are in their usual hurried state…not giving pause where a breath is due.” ― Nanette L. Avery

Spelling Be

scared and sacred same letters

 

I find it,
interesting, to read;
That anagrams reveal,
similar, or opposing meanings.

The spelling of Heart,
can be turned into Earth.
The spelling of March,
can be turned, into Charm.

The spelling of from,
can be turned into a form.
The spelling of Reveal,
can become a Leaver.

There, in, was the surprise,
when spelling, within words and lines.
Hidden letters, can be refined.

“It’s a struggle,” she said, with a chortle,

“to live your life, as an earthly mortal”

using her fingers, to make “air quotes”

she prompted that I should try “rhyming some notes.”

 

“Settle down, relax, chill and rest,

keep quiet and still, it’s for the best.”

I replied, “but, oh no, i can’t,

doing nothing, is much too hard.”

 

Then… as, i began to write words down,

what feelings were coming and going around.

Drifting inwards, with that flow,

I found it easier, to quite simply, let go…

“Your words have power use them wisely.” Anonymous

When words, pens and hearts collide,

our soul sends messages, letters, divined.

laced together, bedazzling, sparkling lights,

The “spelling” of words, casting magical inner sights.

In the love of poetry, spirits run free,

if i couldn’t write, then i wouldn’t be true to me!

weaving rhythms, waves and patterns

dancing in tunes and songs of lyrical passions…
