Bloody Unusual

My
uncanny heart
is a lair
for numerous bloody unusual
tales.





Liner Notes for this Groove: This poem was created for the Weekly Scribblings prompt at Poets and Storytellers United - Unusual, Uncommon, Uncanny.

Also, on the advice of cleverer poets, a last minute word swap was made which makes it much better IMHO... "several" for "numerous".

  2. I love the idea of your heart being a lair! But I imagine it must harbour numerous rather than merely several such tales?

  6. I completely agree. Which might be why reading this elfchen makes me want to reread "What's a Little Blood to a Mother's Heart". So, I will.

  11. "Numerous" works. There are many more than "several" within you. Somehow I know this. ;)

  16. The first time I read it, it was tales of blood, "bloody tales," the second time it was that the tales are "bloody unusual." Then, a lair would be full of either, so thank you for waking me up to ponder on it!
