Explorations Into Liminality
“and there came an arm and a hand above the water and met it and caught it, and so shook it thrice and brandished it, and then vanished away the hand with the sword in the water.”

Wellaway Words for Wednesday


Pale, beyond porch and portal,
Crowned with calm leaves, she stands
Who gathers all things mortal
With cold immortal hands;
Her languid lips are sweeter
Than love's who fears to greet her
To men that mix and meet her
From many times and lands.

Algernon Charles Swinburne 1837-1909, The Garden of Proserpine


The Secret of Beauty Circlet

That's quite a beautiful poem and I love that circlet: the peacock feather is gorgeous in it.

You certainly know how to conjure the right mix!-beautiful headress from The Wicked Hatress yet again! and those words they make me visualise woodlandy floaty faes gliding through the wil-o-the-wisp on the break of dawn.

Conjure me your button less I go mad
