Poetry Scribbles


Today (October 6, 2016) is National Poetry Day! …In the UK. But hey, I figured why let them have all the fun? πŸ˜‰

I very rarely write poetry, and it’s always of the rhyming variety since I don’t understand anything else, and I haven’t written any in a long time. But I thought I’d just dump a few of my scribblings here for the day. Because.

Some of my longer pieces I sometimes think about maybe posting on their own or doing . . . something with. I don’t know. Whatever it is people do with poetry. >.>

So these are short ones which I’m kind of fond of. Just snatches, really, since they’re hardly long enough to call poems… *squirms because I’m not used to doing poetry*

Anyhow. Here you are. Poem bits. Scribbles, as Gummy would call them. πŸ™‚


O you are like an adjective
I like you quite a lot
But others with advice to give
Condemn you on the spot


Sing the dawn
Soar and fly
Song of wings
Sung in sky



Hidden treasures of the sea
Hidden treasures, come to me
Far away on distant shore
Who can hear the ocean roar?

~ from The Rose and the Raven by Deborah O’Carroll (Sleeping Beauty retelling novella)


The wind it sweeps along in spring
An almost silent whispering
Like quiet words in secret dream
A far off leaf falls in a stream


Dark fate or bright fortune,
Wither do you go?
Down to the desert
Or up to the snow?


If you come home real late and you drive up and park
It will wait for you there, in the house in the dark


I’ve posted a few bits of poetry on my blog before. You can find them here:

Thoughts (a poem about this blog for when I started it)

Lost in a NaNoWriMo Mist (short piece on NaNo)

A Writer’s Allegiance (humorous poem about pencil, pen, & computer)

Presenting the Strangest Character Silmaril Award (LOTR fanfiction-ish Tom Bombadil poem)


Thanks for reading! ^_^ (Also, this is my 200th post on this blog! *pulls out some leftover confetti from the blogoversary celebration last month and throws it*)

    • Thank you! Glad you found them so. ^_^

      (Oh my goodness HOW HORRIBLE! :O I suppose if worst came to worst you could email me… or I have my blog in the signature of my email so you should have it from that since I emailed you for the giveaway… πŸ˜› But eep, that must be so scary! O_O)


  2. CELTI POETRY!!!! *gobbles up post*

    Okay, first of all THE PICTURE. All those books in it are so pwettyyyy. o.o *drools*

    BUT CELTI. Your poems!!! You are SO good at writing really humorous ones AND gorgeous, whimsical ones. I mean, that one from The Rose and the Raven. <333 Still totally in love with that one! AND THE ONE BELOW IT. About the wind. AAAHHHHH!!!! IT IS SO GORGEOUS I JUST WANT TO SOAK IN ALL THE BEAUTIMOUS WORDS.

    And that last one was so chilling. o.O Oh my goodness. That needs to be in a novel or something!!

    Just…just…ALL YOUR POETRY. *huggles it* I am so in awe at people who can do poetry, because it's waaay beyond me. You should write more because YOU ARE SO TALENTED. I mean, I will never recover from the complete and total and utter BRILLIANCE that was your Tom Bombadil poem.

    Oh, oh! And this was your 200th post?? *THROWS CONFETTI* ALL THE WONDERFUL CELTI POSTS.

    • Eep, thank you so much, Lauri!! ^_^ Heehee, I’m glad you like the picture and my poetry. πŸ˜€ Awk, I just don’t even know what to SAY to all your niceness! Your comment definitely made my day! ❀ And I can't usually write poetry on demand, since I kinda have to be inspired… so maybe that's part of it. XD Other than the Bombadil thing I haven't written any in AGES. o.o (Also I'm so glad you liked that one toooo!! :D) *still celebrating 200 postses* THANK YOUUUU! ❀ (And YES, Gummy!!! :D)


  3. Those are quite lovely. Hard to choose a favorite, but I think the wind one captures me the most at the moment. Though the adjective one makes me laugh, and I have a soft spot for the one from the Rose and the Raven, because I loves that story. πŸ™‚ Ooh, and the fortune one… probably because it mentions snow. πŸ™‚

    Poetry is fun!

  4. Lovely! I loved them all, but the one about the adjective made me chuckle. So clever! They all have such a wonderful flow to the words, which, besides rhyming, is the most important thing to me in poetry. πŸ™‚
    I do hope you share your longer poetry!

    • Actually, this made me think about poetry some more, and I realized that word flow is more important to me in poetry than rhyming. I’ve heard/read poems that didn’t rhyme but had a lovely rhythm and beautiful imagery and I liked them just fine, whereas certain poems that rhymed but sounded forced didn’t do anything for me. πŸ™‚

    • Hurray, glad you liked them, Kelsey! Thank you! ^_^ And that you think they flow well — so happy to hear that! I may share some more sometime. πŸ™‚ And that’s an interesting thought! I guess I could see that, especially with your love of description etc. — it may go along with a love for word flow. πŸ™‚


  5. Congrats on your 200th post and YAY I LIKE THIS A LOT.😍 I’m really horrible at poetry, meaning I barely ever “get it” hahha, but I loved yours. They’re so simple and beautifully rhymed. I like the 3rd one the best!

  6. Awww, I love them all! Honestly, I couldn’t pick a favorite. πŸ™‚ I had halfway forgotten that you write poetry, but how could I? I mean, the one in The Rose and the Raven was lovely, and your Tom Bombadil poem earlier this summer was GOLDEN. And these are all beautiful and/or amusing! ❀ Makes me want to go pen another poem of my own, which I haven't done in quite some time. You're an inspiration!

    • Eep, thank youuuuu!!! ^_^ Goodness, your sweet thoughts about my poetry absolutely make my WEEK. (Heehee, the Tom Bombadil one, yes. XD) And inspiring you to want to write a poem yourself — that is high praise indeed! πŸ™‚

      Thanks for all your loverly comments, Tracey! <333
