Watercolor of Open Window at Night with Two Moons She rose from her bed, Cobwebs in her head, And studied the light in her room. Through windows it played Pale fingers that splayed Dispelling the darkness and gloom. Like a fairy it called And she followed, enthralled Ensnared by its enticing tune She peered through her blinds Astonished to find Bright stars and the face of two moons. Two moons glowing pale As if hung on a scale… Read More

Waves and Storms Such fickle thorns Which billow and blow Shouting, “GO! NO! GO!” You staunch threadbare wings Ensnaring the one who sings Fly fairy, flee Find your victory. ~ Janna Vanderveen (Click on thumbnail for full-resolution image)

He’s coming. Awake, awake O sleeper He’s coming. He’s alive. Jesus of Nazareth. The Son of David. The slain lamb. He was born to be a king. He’s alive. The Jewish Man. He’s alive. Prepare the way. People get ready. Surely He is not a man that He should lie. He said He would come again. He will come again. People get ready. Some said a carpenter. Some said a teacher. Some… Read More

Moons Runes Muttering buffoons A sordid lot, my crew Torn sails Broken rails The thorn of my travails A beastly ship, this canoe Rotten health Dwindling wealth No pride or stealth Given in search of you. ~ Janna Vanderveen (Click on thumbnail to see high-resolution image) Photo Credit: http://www.widewallpapers.us

Chain mail and fire Nightmare or desire Soft feathers of flight Hardened scales of might Violent energy in hands Sizzling violet strands Of power For this hour Foreseen and foretold In prophesies of old Shout, woe is the day Wail, woe is the way Of black dragon and nightrider And the vengeance inside her. ~ Janna Vanderveen (Click on thumbnail to see high-resolution image) Photo Credit: http://www.pageresource.com

Inside autumn’s dream A pixie popinjay Weaves golden leaves as one Into a grand toupee. With wings so very sheer Your dance a grand ballet And preen before the crowd In an extravagant sort of way. ~ Janna Vanderveen (Click on the thumbnail to view a high-resolution image)

Faerie and pixie, Both wearing green, Frolic beside, A blue-flowing stream. Both tiny and large Sprinkling star-dust with glee Proving size doesn’t matter. Where there’s inner beauty. ~ Janna Vanderveen (Click on thumbnail for high-resolution image)

Dragonrider queen With plumage ever fair Your dragon ate my cow And now I’ve none to spare. Your beauty is unworldly Your exploits told in song Your dragon’s legendary So please don’t take this wrong.

Whose birth… Read More
