Words for Wednesday: The Green Fairy

Words for Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Delores from Under the Porch Light (no longer blogging) a long time ago and it is hosted by various different bloggers. There are a different set of prompts each week, which can be words, phrases, music or an image. What we do with them is up to us: a short story, prose, a song, a poem or treating them with ignore. We can use some or all of the prompts.

“The Sun’s Return”, a poem inspired by Lincolnshire skies

My home county, the second largest in England, is characterised by wide open fields stretching right to the horizon. Apart from a beautiful cluster of hills known as “the Wolds” and the aptly-named “Steep Hill” in Lincoln, the area […]
