Poetry ~ Folly

i am scattered everywhere 
so many thoughts
so little time
to discover folly
to play, laugh,
find joy
to be foolish and fool hearty
i want to frolic in the flower fields
run my fingers through your hair
i am your folly
your freedom
your spirit
your canvas
your muse


~ Elizabeth Anne Ives

Wordsmithery ~ Poem

I am the ancient muse
with countless words left to say
yet I find myself lacking,
lost in the words of modern day

a century prior,
so fluid my tongue
I sum it up thusly,
my words have devolved into a
fusty glut of outdated idioms

old English
middle English
songs of the renaissance
no longer resonate

hence, a pilgrimage with
my dear medium through
the urban dictionary
and the new darling,
Wiktionary!

a collaboration in
wordsmithery
old and new
muse and medium
merge
into the inter-web
of words


stay tuned ...

Coven of Obscurity ~ Reveal

Greetings,
Allow me to introduce my muse.
She is a dark witch.
This is our blog.
I am her medium.
She is the Archivist for the
Coven of Obscurity.
She is from another time and place.
We share the pen name, Elizabeth Anne Ives.

 For the A to Z Challenge

my muse will be sharing stories
from the coven's archives,
and her personal diaries.

The stories are woven

into verse designed
 for the curious,
 impatient, and astute reader.


Beware: some stories are true,
some are comedic whimsy.
Try not to take any of it too seriously.
All stories shall be under
two-hundred words so you 
may return to your
modern-day rabbit hole
(social media).

Forever yours in search of Alice,
(there's been a sighting)
