  1. I don’t know how or why, but I couldn’t for the life of me remember any Laila Flynn stories…so I went back to Red is the new Gold…and I hadn’t read it!!!! I will catch up on all her adventures asap 😀 XXX

  2. “I pushed from under a house of lies and with open eyes,
    I rebirthed my Self anew.”

    I’m spellbound by your words. Simply haunting.

  3. Such a cool poem, Magaly–I especially like the parts about the shoes and the innocents–a sense of humor here even in the darkness. I am sorry–too tired this month to leave a good comment but enjoyed the poem. k.

  4. I’m sitting here wondering how it is that you can weave a spell with your words in such compelling way. Even the dark has depth that the light can’t touch. You are a word trickster and a fine crafter of magickal tales. Love it.
    And yes, we do have cookies for special folks……………xoxo Oma Linda

  5. ‘..the innocent should never be digested..’ (!!) You absolutely rule with these kinds of lines–so matter of fact, dry and also, good to remember, even in the midst of horrors. I loved the trip to a darker realm, with another wise and seeing woman, vividly painted, and full of strength and purpose.

    • I think people continue to be themselves regardless of the situation they are facing. Some traits might mellow while others come up to scream, but at the core personalities will how their true colors… I guess this lady is a bit funny. 😀

  6. I haven’t read the Laila Flynn tales in their entirety (yet), so I didn’t know the identity of the speaker in that context, but this poem stands alone beautifully. It’s the sort of gorgeous poetry that I loved to analyze the living daylights out of back in my final year of high school, as we all sat on top of our desks sipping coffee… We had an incredibly cool English Lit. teacher. ;D

  7. I know nothing of Laila Flynn but the poem is strong and enticing ..the art is stunning and goes with the poem beautifully.

  8. I have never read the book you speak of (so no spoilers from these lips) but am still enchanted by your gorgeous words.
    That last stanza dropped an entire painting into my head!

    • Want to know a secret? The last stanza was the first one that came to my mind… after that, I knew I had to go back to see exactly why. Glad you liked it.

      Oh, and if that paint ever leaps from head to canvas… do let me see it! ♥

  9. Your words are magic!! “A Witch in touch with nature.””I pushed from under a house of lies and with open eyes, I rebirthed my Self anew.” You are brilliant girl! Love this! Amazing painting!

  10. See? No spoilers. *shows hands* Though I would like to comment on how much I liked the way you used Elemental imagery in this. It was lyrical and visual, both. I read it twice. That’s what I do when I like something. *nods sagely*
