Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 38 – FAIRY & MAGIC

Today, my husband and I had a grisly conversation about death… not exactly a cheery morning chit chat but I thought if I have to go one day and no doubt I will…. this is how I’d like to imagine it… Not some black, bleak, meaningless end.  No, I’d like a supernatural being to visit me. No vampires please unless you are so handsome and your final bite is worth it! Perhaps a magnificent unicorn to carry me far away on some incredible adventure, or a mermaid to take me swimming in some exotic land… Wait a minute…. What about many supernatural beings, (except zombies – they don’t rock my boat!) plus the delicate kindness of the fairies to see me off?…. Now, that sounds perfect!

AHOY!

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

    1. Thank you Annika. It’s funny how chatting about thought provoking subjects can lead to writing poetry! I never quite know what I’m going to write about until I start and then it comes to me in a flash!

  1. Loved your poem Marje, and yes you are right, Life is for living and very short in the scheme of things.. And my hubby and I had that conversation some time ago.. lol.. And told our children too.. No morbid music, but a celebration of life ..
    My sister who came close to a brush with death when 36 with cancer who is now 20 years cancer free, has let every one know she wants every one to come in fancy dress to her funeral.. lol.. Yes dancing with death changes perspectives and gives you the Will to Enjoy LIVING..
    🙂
    Wishing you and your hubby a wonderful Long long life of making happy memories.. <3 xxx Hugs Sue

  2. Very imaginative Marje, no-one knows so its great to be creative about the big moment. Recently my father died at 5.00 am on the morning of his 100th birthday, now that took a bit of planning.

    1. Oh, my goodness he must have desperately wanted to get to 100! Hope the fairies gave him a gentle journey to his resting place. So very sorry to hear about your loss, Denis. Much love Marje xx

  3. Marje! Your poem is beautiful. I love it! As a Buddhist, I like to think that Nirvana is found by reincarnating into a fairy being protecting the natural world on our earth. Not earthbound – but ethereal. It’s like giving back for the wonderful life we experience. Hugs to you, my sweet friend. <3

    1. Ah, thank you so much Colleen. I love how poetry and writing can be inspired by many different thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are discussed or seen. Sometimes you don’t even have to see magical beings you just feel them in your heart. 🙂 x

  4. Your description of those final moments had me both smiling and yes sighing. Ah to be carried off by fairies …. I actually did have a NDE and in all seriousness it was THE most beautiful Moment of my life. Unfortunately no fairies were seen. But LOVE was very present. Beautiful poem, Marje. ☺️💝
