My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

2 Creatures of the Night

at nightfall
bring forth the crazies,
prowling for tasty morsels;
judged worthy of their sweet kiss,
run fruitlessly; hope
for safety

attempt #2 at a Butterfly Oddquain.  additional inspirations for this post came from Three Word Wednesday [3WW=>judge, nightfall, safety], as well as Poetic Asides' Wednesday Poetry Prompt.  part of me thought to entitle it vampires, but i felt 'creatures of the night' worked a bit more.  i'm not really good at the whole punctuation thing.  probably should have just left it without, but i am rather fond of commas.  as for the semicolons, well their half comma so...


  1. Nice wings! And welcome to poetic asides, too!
    As far as punctuation, I read somewhere that if it's not clunky or obvious, then it's just fine. And I agree. I used to spend too much time on it. And since nothing flew out at me on first read of your oddquain, i'd say you've done a fine job!

  2. Commas are the only punctuation I use. The odd time I use a semi colon but I think as a poet there are no rules. As for the piece, I thought it was quite well written, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Love and Light, Sender
