Jewel (by Sandra Regina)
Like a cocoon of silk
Wrapped in jewels
Her hair
Wisped in the wind

A shell curled round a string
Like a forgotten thing
A talisman
Of ancient wonderings

    These words were extracted from a five minute stream of consciousness exercise.

    “A talisman of ancient wonderings” – perfect!
    There’s some really evocative imagery here. I can almost touch it.

    What was the exercise?

    I get a mental picture of a little girl with that little-girl wispy hair, barely held together by an old-fashioned hairclip, maybe one that was her grandmother’s.
