The September birthstone is the sapphire, which was once thought to guard against evil and poisoning.

blue magic in a crystal glass

fairy tale creatures sup the past

of hidden evil, we once knew

neath wondrous skies of sapphire blue

blue magic in radiant gems

most favored for a diadem

enchanting visions pure and true

neath wondrous skies of sapphire blue

blue magic, its luster delights

in the gloaming, a gift of life

harmonies not known hitherto

neath wondrous skies of sapphire blue

Please join our talented community and challenge yourselves by contributing your own creation using the week by week featured word, image or both. There are no restrictions, except please and thank you for limiting a written post to 300 words or fewer.

  3. Eugenia,

    Oooo, I like this word prompt! I liked last week’s, too. I even began a poem but didn’t get it finished until a few minutes ago. I will try to showcase that poem this week and if I come up with something for today’s word then I’ll let you know. Thanks for sparking my creativity and for joining me on the dance floor, my dear friend! xx
