"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2016 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw.

Dear Dad

Hi Dad, it's my first letter from the castle, so I am using
the best parchment and inks from the court stationary shop.
Paris was beautiful and now we are back and settled
into the court just fine.
The first month, the Prince killed two dragons.
The second month, he won four battles.
This past month, he helped organize a meeting
about the magna carta, rid the castle of three
faux gold merchants, and threw out two
clothiers who sold "invisible fabric." He doesn't
fall into traps, that one. I am wondering though,
will he ever learn to pick up his socks?
The weather is lovely, see you at St. Lucias Day.
Love,
Your C~ella
