Youthful Fantasy – Mag 29



buried ‘neath
canopy high
green fol’age
cover hidden
like that of



holding powers
seen by
playing in
wild abandon

This was written for the Magpie Tales prompt based on the picture above. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying. I played around with some “broken” words… did it work? is my point coming across? Thanks for any feedback!

    An awesome poem for those of us with a strong grasp of the English language. This could be very difficult for those who carry English as a second language. Do you have many fans worldwide who read your work who have expressed difficulty in understanding your poem?

    Very fine Mag 29 … good for you. I could have pictured the scene even without the photograph.

    I agree with Jamie, you really painted a great picture here. I really did not need the photograph to supplement my imagination. Good work.

    a magical piece – especially the last line – some things are only visible for the children or the child in us
