Shortest Day

Shortest Day

@FreyaPickard

 

everlight glows
molten amber spilling
over mauve horizon
pulses like liquid metal
sheds no heat in frigid air
erupts, shatters the long night
splits reality between stones
banishes dark, illuminates
blue vale momentarily
before sinking once more;
shortest day

Freya Pickard

JULY 2022 AUTHOR OF THE MONTH at Spillwords.com
Pushcart Prize nominee, Freya Pickard, is the quirky, unusual author of The Kaerling series, an epic fantasy set in the strange and wonderful world of Nirunen. A cancer survivor, she writes mainly dark fantasy tales and creates expressive poetry in order to leach the darkness from her soul. Her aim in life is to enchant, entertain and engage with readers through her writing. She finds her inspiration in the ocean, the moors, beautifully written books and vinyl music (particularly heavy metal and rock). She enjoys Hatha Yoga, Bhangra and Yogalates and in her spare time creates water colours and pastel drawings of the worlds in her head.
