Welcome to the blog post challenge.
Below is an example of a blog post written by Pie.
On the Way Home…
I met a girl called Winter.
She had eyes of frost that glittered
and her hands were snow-soft
with fingernails of ice that burned my cheek.
She whispered silver words
that fell like thin coins
into a well of wishes.
I met a boy called Owl.
His head swiveled like a lighthouse beam
and his amber eyes scanned the world.
Gnarled talons like tree roots for hands
and the soft shuffle of feathers for a coat.
His hair was softly spun
and his touch softened my hands.
I met a man called Sunset
His eyes wept red and towards evening,
His clouded face faded into silence
as if he had just stepped out of doors.
He drank a lake
to swallow the moon.
I met a woman called Fire
Her skin sizzled and her heart pulsed like a sun
beneath a ribcage of embers; polished eyes
blazed like burnished copper.
She spoke of frail things
that too soon wither
I met a princess who was Unfortunate.
Her hands let slip the truth
and her fingers were thin as chicken bones.
Her hands fidgeted, fingers ticked
relentlessly and her face
darkened towards evening.
I met a Prince called Greed.
His belly round as a beach ball
and feet sloth-slow as he consumed
the earth like birthday cake,
scattering crumbs of rock.
His eyes were sunken ships
and his mouth a cavern’s dark.
He cried but no tears fell.
I met a soldier of Peace.
Butterflies lived in his pockets
and out of his gun grew primroses
and he spoke to me of laughter
with a voice of tinsel and stars.
On my way home, I met Myself.
I was standing in a hall of mirrors
and forever growing smaller.
I spoke of all the little things
that made me what I am:
red Smarties, walking on my hands
and the Beano once a week.
