The Heart Stone – A Haiku

The RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #104 words for this week are “dazzle & sky.”

I am still editing The Swamp Fairy, Book 1 of the Heart Stone Chronicles. My fairy nymphs are never far, and they continue to share the wonders of their nymph kingdom with me…

Here’s a sneak peek from The Swamp Fairy:

“The heart stone is a massive chunk of green calcite located deep within the swamp which Abby Forester inherited from her mother. The mystical stone is surrounded by a fairy rath, an earthen ridge of land built up to resemble a bank or wall. Within this swamp fairy rath, grows the elusive pink sundew plants known for their medicinal properties. Revered by early Native Americans, the plants could prove to be the key to saving humanity.

Abby wears a green calcite pendant which her mother once wore. The pendant, a piece of the heart stone from the swamp, enhances emotional balance and the knowledge of divine love. When worn near the heart, green calcite ignites an emotional connection between the Naiad Nymphs and Abby, revealing her true destiny.

Can Abby save the swamp and the Naiad Nymph Clan from certain destruction before it is too late?”

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time. Hugs! <3

    1. I am probably pushing the boundaries, but have a haiku at the beginning of each of the chapters of my book… I want that to be my trademark. 😉 Glad you enjoyed. 😀 <3

  1. In the secret place of the Heart Stone you’ve created a real/mythical place that charms my imagination. Excellent. My granddaughter Mia will love this. <3

    1. I am plugging along. We’ve been busy so I try to do as much as I can each day. It is shaping up to be a wonderful story! Thanks, Marje. How about your book?

      1. It’s coming along Colleen.. Have my beta comments now…. but taking an age, seems to be growing bigger.. now around 90,000 words, will have to do a final edit at the end, and cut out superfluous words!
