Splitting Hairs

Splitting Hairs


I shall not talk of magick

Nor dare I write of spells


I refuse to burn green candles and

See no point in splitting hairs


Last night though for a moment

The moon was almost ours




  • orchidee

    I got no green candles? Does the Co-op sell them?!

    • Neville

      thank you O

    • dusk arising

      Here we go... Nev once again leads me into a pleasureable mystery tale.... such a romance .... not splitting hairs but was there parting of hairs one wonders?

      Great possibilities arise each time i re-read this piece. Now that's great entertainment value for the readers creative mind.

      Excellent mind capture Neville.
