Fall Writing Frenzy 2020 - Image #12 LITTLE WITCH

FALL WRITING FRENZY 2020


A “Little” Witchy Magic!

 

 

My sisters said I can’t attend the Midnight Magic Ball. 

“A snip of a witch! Untried! Unskilled! Besides…she’s much too small.” 

 

My biggest sister says she turned a boy into a ghost. 

And changing puppies into cats? My middle sister’s boast!

 

But I will prove them wrong if I practice every day. 

My spells will be original. Not any “old witch” way! 

 

I’ll make my magic perfect. All I need to do is focus. 

A sparkling wand, some spooky smoke…a “little” hocus-pocus! 

 

I’ll call the forest fairies to dance upon a pin. 

And set green vines a twirling ‘round all pumpkins with a grin. 

 

I’ll send a vampire bat to swoop across an eerie moon. 

And change one sister’s cat into a goodie-stealing goon. 

 

My other sister’s cat will bring me all her candy treats. 

And I will give the sweets to costumed kids that walk the streets. 

 

Do not misjudge my magic! Be it potion, chant or spell… 

My “little” witch enchantments are for “Show” and not for “Tell!”

  7. Your snip of a witch is quite the adorable and mischievous character. I love your inventive wordplay, especially the magic contained in these lines: I’ll call the forest fairies to dance upon a pin./And set green vines a twirling ‘round all pumpkins with a grin."
