“the tempest”

it was twilight
at the peak of midsummer
when the sun tipped from its fiery height
into its annual descent into darkness

she felt the power

as the waxing moon began to rise
she gazed into the water
seeing beyond the illusion of calm
into the truth of the approaching
tempest

as she touched
her worn amulet
she could sense

a fern grotto

a ring of power

an invocation spoken

she saw
a white hare
stiff and still
its tiny heart
beating fast
sniffing
sensing
the unnatural silence
of the forest

she felt
a wide web of magic
light as a whisper
of gossamer

cast out into the air

drifting

floating

out upon the breeze

pooling
flooding
into the village
where each door
was safely locked
and bolted

or so the villagers thought

she saw
the mist
of the evil spell
passing through each and every
open keyhole
into each and every
cottage
except

one

she knew what she must do
and she knew
the adventure
had just
begun……
