chaos

Dearest creature in creation
Studying English pronunciation,

I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse and worse

I will keep you, Susy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.

Tear in eye your dress you’ll tear,
So shall I! Oh, hear my prayer,

Pray, console your loving poet,
Make my coat look new, dear, sew it!… read more

Bow ties on Time Lords and gingers in jumpers
White dancing Daleks and sonic screwdrivers
Empty blue journals all tied up with string,
These are a few of my favorite things

Plaid wearing brothers and trenchcoated angels
Salt rounds and Hell Hounds and short shotgun barrelswinchestersandkas
Heavenly war and the Four Horsemen’s rings,
These are a few of my favorite things

Doctors and bloggers and war-ridden veterans
Murderers and victims and jumping from buildings
sherlockviolin
Very sharp cheekbones an violin strings,
These are a few of my favorite things

When Moffat strikes
When the angels fall
When I’m feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

Magic and houses and Weasly Wizard Wheezes Harry-Potter-harry-potter-26825009-1680-1050
Slytherins and Gryffindors and moving staircases
Hungarian Horntails and when the mermaid sings,
These are a few of my favorite things

Hobbits and wizards and immortal elves
lord4
Dwarfs and dragons and Middle Earth spells
The Eye of Sauron and Gollum’s precious ring
These are a few of my favorite things

Princes and servants and sword wielding knights
The blacksmith’s daughter and sorcerers rights
Golden eyes and guilt-ridden kings
These are a few of my favorite things

When books end
When shows are canceled
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

May the universe grant me:

The power of water, to accept with ease and grace, that which I cannot change.

The power of fire, to change with energy and courage, those things which I can.

The power of air, to know with intuition and wisdom, which is which.

The power of earth, to continue with strength and steadfastness, on my journey.read more

Magick is waking up and finding you swimming in a glistening drop of dew. And then stepping out onto a golden ray of sunshine.

Magick is flying on the back of a honey bee and discussing the art of aromatherapy.

Magick is learning from a butterfly the thrill of beginning a new life.

Magick is sitting on a tree limb with a large black crow and joining him as he laughs at the follies of the world.… read more
