blossoms go

even from shadows
blossoms rise from dirt and ash
even as they cower
when the sun covers her face
in grim, lonely clouds
the blossoms know once
the rain showers begin
they will be able to release
the flowers from within,
reaching upward and outward
with their tiny grins
winking in the wind

vulnerable towers

you observed me with eyes
clear after a storm of thoughts
yet once some words shot
from my lips, i noticed they got
caught in the drift, carried away
by the waves, inward, until
they spilled and stirred up
milky clouds, you lifted them
to the light – sifted them through
your anxieties and frights –
revisiting that cold tower
ugly and loud stones
clatter as you race up
the staircase in your mind
hoping that you find
something in the nothing
of the shadows you feel
ashamed and weak for
hiding behind

written by Tiny Fawns for daily prompt: exposed

forests & tangled things

within the depths of the forest slept
a thousand days that have passed away,
stowed away in another time
you reach out from your room amongst the
stars, calling on me to reach back and find
a path through the tangled webs that have
been woven of words and emotions
felt, shared, or left unspoken –
a hunt begins, picking up the leaves of trees
to recreate the breeze of autumns
and springs and the storms of
winters and summers, so that my head
and heart may continue to slumber
and dream of the things you have
set out to share with me

The 8th Day

May 2017 – 31 Day Blog Challenge
Theme: What’s in my handbag?

I usually don’t carry a handbag or purse, I carry a drawstring backpack since I find them more convenient for my work and hobbies. I tend to carry a “trash” journal – basically this is a cheap small journal I write all of my notes in for work and daily writings. Once I finish with it, I throw it away (usually the writings I write in it end up shared on here!) Additionally, I’ll carry a pouch with pens, pencils, highlighters … a small umbrella, wallet, keys, etc. A year or so ago I wouldn’t be caught without a makeup bag but now I just carry my hairbrush and chap stick for touching up during the day. Overall, nothing too intriguing, haha.

Credits in the image. Feel free to participate in the challenge, too!

As always, thank you for stopping by and reading.

Tiny Fawns is a poetry journal with occasional art work. 
I recently decided to participate in this challenge so that my followers and anyone who ventures into Tiny Fawns Land can have a clearer picture of who I am, what I do, etc etc.
I rarely if ever blog outside of poetry, so for you followers who follow me strictly for poetry, I hope you will be gracious for the month of May to see a daily update from me that is not poetry. 🙂 I will of course be continuing my daily updates of poetry in addition to this.
