50 Precious Words Contest--Vivian Kirkfield




FAERY DRAGON (48)


Moonlight shines against the cliff
where Rupert lives alone.
Nowhere is safe for a dragon
in a world of steel and chrome.

In the moonlight beneath the stars,
he's free to romp and play.
So he frolics in the dark of night,
And hides in light of day.

Weather Writing Prompts.


Snow, Winter, Frost, Cold, Frozen, Ice
Today in West Virginia! It looks cold doesn't it? I became excited last night when I looked outside at huge flakes were flying. It was a blizzard. And this morning, everything is white. It's not a good day for hiking or jogging or doing anything outside, except 
building snowmen, snowballs or sledding. But, there is one thing that it's great for and that's . . .
WRITING!!! I've already thought of ideas for three new picture books. Anyone else snowed in? Instead of getting a bad case of *cabin fever* why not join me today. Use the weather as your writing prompt; snow, snow day, sleding, etc., you get the idea. Bye for now. :)

Have a very Happy & Blessed Christmas!


A STAR SHOWN IN THE SKY


On the first day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The birth of our lord is magnified.

On the second day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The angels sung a joyful lullaby.

On the third day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The birth of a savior is nigh.

On the fourth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
A sign unto Shepherds camping bye.

On the fifth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
A savior is born from on high.

On the sixth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
To the manger where the baby lie.

On the seventh day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Wise men journey near to edify.

On the eighth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Animals come in wonder and awe.

On the ninth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The blessed babe does not cry.

On the tenth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The foretold event is satisfied.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Peace on Earth is gifted hereby.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Bringing joy to the world in a sigh.

Working on What?

 
 
 
A peek at a book that I'm working on.  
Most boys may reach for the stars, but these two explorers hatch a plan to fly with the birds. After many years of experiments they learn through trail and error that you can do anything you want if--you don't give up!
They learn to cope with their bitter disappointments. They learn to change what doesn't work. They learn that nothing is more important than making a dream come true.
