To enter this challenge, you need to write a poem or song lyrics about spiritual or mystical experience.

It can be a narrative poem about a particular experience you can have or it can be fairly abstract and descriptive; it can be about spirituality in general or a particular aspect of spirituality such as angels, meditation, or spirits.

Your poem or lyrics must be at least 8 lines long and must have a title. There is no maximum length stipulation. It does not necessarily need to rhyme, but should be structured as poetry rather than prose and have some kind of pattern to it. However if you decide to use a particular type of poetry, eg a sonnet or a ballad, you may want to explain that in your posted entry as the amount of thought you have taken may be taken into consideration during the voting. You may post a short preamble in prose if you wish to introduce the poem or lyrics.

It can be accompanied by scanned/computer-created illustrations if you wish.

Please feel free to discuss ideas here and ask questions about this particular challenge. All entries must be posted in this thread by 20th May to be included in the voting.

Pixies at Play

The slightest movement in the
corner of
my eye.

Flickering, dancing, beckoning...or tricks of the mind?

Distant music, rhythmic and familiar
followed by soft laughter
and nearly imperceptible whispers.

"come play"

My feet tap in time to the beat heard in my head.
Body sways slowly to the
left and
the right.

Wild eyed cat runs into the room.
Fur a mess from head to tail
from a playful faery kiss.

I laugh along with the shadows
and dance among them.

The Joy of Angels,


What are our angels around us to do?,
They help us feel happy when we’re feeling blue,
They wrap us up in their lovely big wings,
And if you listen very carefully you might hear them sing.
If you see a white feather float down to the ground,
Its your angels way of letting you know they’re around,
No matter what you’re doing or where you may be,
Talk to your angel, they will listen carefully.
So when you are playing happily and don’t think they are there,
Talk to them anyway cause the are always very near.


I wrote this for my son who has Aspergers syndrome and has a tough time socially especially at school. I am currently teaching him all about angels and telling him that when he is in a stressful situation at school talk to his angel in his head and they will come and help him.

As your gracious lights shines on my from above
I know the worls is filled with your love
As you watch down over us
You can see the world is filled with fus
All the terror and war
Right at our door
Is of no fault from you
The choices are ours to make
Even if they are made from hate
You give us free will to do good or bad
And those decisions sometimes make you mad or sad
Your the one I call upon for
Forever been and forever more

this is about god

Those are both very beautiful. Carrie, what a powerful last line. And Molly, what a wonderful message to put across to your son.
