Beneath Autumn Starlight~Songs for Creaturely Hearts~

~victoria pettella~

*



Autumn engulfed 
the last wounds 
of Summer
Kissed every petal 
to its withering end
Made pyres 
of burning altars
all for her
Combed her 
glittering 
mane 
 down into 
the earthly roots
Fused in a tapestry 
of eternal seeds
And dressed her  
in a shimmering frock 
of Majestic 
Death

*





In the Autumn flowers
where life 
was fading
I began to live
again


*



Creaturely<<Birds>>Hearts

*

Birds hang their hearts 
like beads upon 
burning threads of sunrise
Fire and glory sing 
in Summer's grand pyre 
of wild blooms
Violets circling the Lily's 
first opening
Tangled Harebell comfort
the dying mound of Iris
Catnip swarms the floral 
husks from Midsummer
There were stones overturned
from night creatures
Swiftly, the Robin swims 
for worms in 
a newly revealed 
wave of earth
The Moon still hides 
in an ocean of daylight
the palest blue dithering 
on pearlescent-grey
The Raven has 
muffled its grim caw 
in the highest pine
Untouched by 
the golden
Elven-breeze
so close
so close we are
so far from 
infinity







SPELLS<<<HEARTS>>>Faery-bones
*

Faery-bones weave my Heart
with vaporous spells
of haunted flesh
and Forest blood
Wild in their mischief
they lace my dreams
in Wreathes of Red Toadstool
and Rowan berries
Soul twined in burning Hazel
Poems stitched in Elder Bark
Kisses for the Darkling Elves
who dance nightly
for the Queen Lark






Creaturely-Fae...so lingersome

*

Lingersome-Fae 

Near the white Lily Glen

Birds of paradise soaked 

in Summer's waning dew

Should the Elm bow down 

to the sleeping wren

I will come near

For it is here 

where I found you

With your inkwell and poems

and wild sunrise potions

The fawn and flora kissed

beneath the slumbering 

Maiden of May

You read aloud not knowing 

I could hear

Listening to your dark voice

like a velvet bell 

tolling in the 

thundering void of my heart 

I knew who you were to me

and I sat upon the mossy hill 

Hidden by the brambles

 and the stolen skeletal berries

Where the maimed fox lingers still

like a phantom tiger-lily-bloom

Mane of marmalade-fire

Your eyes were made 

of hidden firelight 

Cloaked in a cape 

of infinite-black

And I yearned to fill them 

with my love-light of stars.. 

For you to gaze upon my soul

and feel your sad eyes open

so newly healed

and glimmering for mine
*








a tapestry 

of Wolf-bones

*


Beneath pale blinding 
spires of Moonlight
How silent the ivy grows
swelling from 
the honey-torn earth
Emerald-stars gleaming
the shadows upon bark
Liminal , my heart sank
then fell no more
Lost between the ritual 
of time and its hidden portal
A tapestry of wolf-bones 
hung high upon 
the black pines
She danced like a wild 
Faery-witch
cloaked in the woodland-blur
soaked in Autumn's darkest wine
A myriad of splitting mirrors 
and broken birds
spinning songs unknown
Daggers cleansed in the rainfall
the forest quelling 
with gasping light
quietly disappears
beneath fading galaxies
How silent , the ivy billows
upon graves of moss
And carves through
daisy-grazed meadows
Liminal, my heart sank
then pulsed no more

*








creaturely-wizards



Foxglove hovers atop
green crinoline
and drowns for Spring's 
Eternal rainfall
Spells unearthed 
like blooming wounds
Songs undone by 
the banshee-heart 
still lingering 
upon the Heathered cliff
The sea-birds crave salted-air
and shrilling gulls fling their 
ballads of doom scant-across
the sea-foam rocks
The wizards of old
unmask their ghosts
to those unafraid 
of what they have lost
*







Songs beneath Autumn starlight

*
Beneath 
the Autumn Starlight
we become
Beautiful Creatures
Hauntful, wild
and luminous
In October's 
strange magic




*
Autumn's breath
a storm of ancient bells
ringing wild
with wind and fire
upon Summer's
Floral grave


*


Stay with me
Wander my
 Creaturely Heart
For within it 
live infinite 
Fairytales 
of the Dark Forest
and beneath every Moon
you may dream with me
cloaked in the Garden
of Wolves
*




SONGS>>>HEARTS<<<OCTOBER




Skeletal whisper 

on your lips

poems of death 

seep through 

October's  skin

Autumn leaves sweet 

in my mouth

Love blooming 

beneath 

the graveyard dirt


*





AUTUMN STARLIGHT

*

Autumn Starlight
burning 
mystic wild
in the Ancient
Woodland-heart

*

Forever..beneath Autumn Starlight

*

Softly, where
the dying meadows 
linger
in the hush 
of Autumn Starlight
the birds gather to chant
where is October's 
dancing breath?
She is the gothic rainfall
parting the leaves
bleeding into 
the rustic forest
of heart-torn melancholy
For Summer has 
sunken away
like a swollen grave
where frayed-angels 
wear wings
of broken seeds 
and ripening clay
Tourmaline-flowering skies
rushed out of your eyes
and I was forever 
changed
*

Beneath 
Autumn Starlight

poems for invisible creatures..


~poems for invisible creatures~

victoria pettella



Wild

my bones 

could not feel death

the rain in my skull 

wore the bruise 

of lonely flowers

Alone

near the strange 

mossy hollow

the rabbit fell away 

like mist

and I was no longer lost

For the endless 

glimmering thread

split itself 

upon the bluest flame

and I was free




*____________*

 poems for invisible creatures


It is the scar of dawn 

that lingers upon 

my disenchanted breath

the skull of lone-bird

In regal sunset

The darkling Oak 

to the wild fairy-heart

The bard of solace to the dying lark

It is the splintered star

Upon night's jagged tongue

The bloodhound just shy 

of nonsensical chart

where the wounded lay ethereal 

in dust-caramel earth

like the amber-glass-fly 

upon its candied-perch

And when the lamp-light heart 

becomes a looming sky

full of hurricane birds 

and haunted song

 the Coyote Willow bleeds down fast

into the feral dust of invisible arms

For Autumn sends 

her bonfire-ghosts

into the vanishing welts of dawn

to kiss vaporous wings 

of fractured birds 

now faded, wistful 

and gone





She fell into the arms
of the dying forest
and gave all of her flesh
to the wilds
of earth

*______________________*


poems for invisible creatures


*

In the deeps 
of the Eternal
Silver ravens plucked stars 
from my soul
Spiders made graves of lace 
in my skull
Fireflies danced their light
into my bones
and Autumn's grimoire 
set itself on fire
*




*_______________*

In Winter sings

a silent bird

that only those near death

can hear


I N V I S I B L E  

*


To All Things Otherworldly and Beautiful...Destroy me


I would rather take the risk

of being destroyed

by something

otherworldly and beautiful

than to keep living

in an empty tomb

with nothing extraordinary

to weep for



*______________*

Lay with me beneath

the sharpened husk

of the Moon

Braid my raven-hair

with blue stars and sapphires

Sing me your dark Autumn-song

Let me belong only to you

and make a sinewed grave of magic

for our flesh to sigh and dream 

forevermore

*_____*


poems for...Invisible Creatures

 

So hauntful glows 

my faerie-torn heart

wound, tide and worlds they meld

all in the moonlit dark

searing, jagged waves burn

across the vampyric clock 

skeleton keys lost 

in the hungering winds

to the enchantress hidden nigh

fernseed dried and crystals buried 

in the forest-tomb

the red fox gathers 

round the Elm-tree-eye

and the rain-kissed roots

where lullabies of dark 

weep in the earth

where the sad witch-lass 

burned and burned

and her broken heart lay

beneath the emerald-mound

encased in a small metal box 

with lost trinkets

dark stars 

and lonely moths

*___________*

 We are Blue Wildfire




poems for invisible creatures

*______*



I have been wearing
the Lost Stars
Feeding from death
Swimming in fire and ashes
Seeding my wounds
in the Evermore
of unanswered dreams
Searching the drifting
galaxies
Someone send me a sign
I have been dying
for years
Someone send me a sign
I have been alive 
on the other side
of the Universe....
waiting to merge,
explode, bend into light
Waiting to find you
A haunting plethora
of nothingness
still carries the light 
from your sleeping Heart
I wear your Starlight
and your Sword
Stitched to the cosmos
last lingering veins
Hoping you will find me
inside the breath
of this lonely dream

*_________*

poems for invisible creatures


No longer impermeable 
Light glimmers from the veil of the Moon 
She has come to taste and free my wounds 
Cosmic Ghosts soak me in Auric Bloom… 
For I am no longer caged in dreams 
No longer a dormant seed 
No longer impermeable
My soul in transit
Now winged and free

Creative Encounters & Kindred Spirits

I love to meet and connect with fellow creatives! I have a deep appreciation for all artists, creative thinkers, unique souls.
While my nature is mostly introverted and I thrive as a hidden -solitaire, I have found connecting with other creative-spirits to be profoundly nourishing and deeply magical in ways my soul understands. To those I have met along the way that have enriched my life with your art-music-writing-creations-passion-energy-open-mindedness....I thank you immeasurably ! and to those I have reconnected with..thank you for giving me a sense of community in a world I always felt on my own in. Thank you for these creative encounters, they have transformed me.
