Freya Pickard

Once upon a time, in the world of Nirunen …

Werebeast

once a warrior
the beast within now rampant
lost in hunger surge

Enril-tura

wind haunts hollow shells
where water flowed, dust now drifts
clawed hand stretches high

Gwanutta

safe within these wards
green leaves hide secret city;
eerie song whispers

Amah

feathered wings smolder
vine erupts, flowers, explodes
eternally burns

Imelenti

pewter stone rises
craggy head cloaked in rainclouds;
the last mountain looms

~~~

Freya Pickard finds fulfillment in writing about the mythical world of Nirunen in both poetry and fantasy novels. This is her 2nd feature on The Short of It. She is currently working on her epic fantasy, The Kaerling, and gets her inspiration for the villains from the people she meets in the hospitality industry.
