Don’t Kill the Fairies!

“Every time a child says it doesn’t believe in fairies, a fairy falls down dead,” said Peter Pan.

Do you believe?

Since the beautiful Samara showers began in early Spring, I have had faeries on my mind, invading my thoughts and stirring my soul.

With childish glee

and fancy flight

They dot the sky

to night’s delight.

Like tinkling bells

their laughter rings,

they whirl and twirl

on gossamer wings!

“Do you believe,”

she whispers low.

”Can you follow me

where’er I go?

(Come, Come!”)

A blink, and gone,

she out of sight,

a spiral string

of twinkling light

winds its way to

heaven,

as there I stand

mouth agape, eyes wide,

my faerie soul swelling with pride.

Would that I, my wings would sprout,

and arms spread wide thus leap and shout

to leave this terra far below and rise to join celestial glow.

(Please, please don’t kill the faeries. Quick, clap your hands together three times!)

A childish delight!

Yet take a closer look,

like the magic in a book..

sparking the imagination

into throes of bright creation-

spinning!

Blinking!

 

Eyes tell mind to loose its grip,

mind abandons thought- I slip

into Wonderland.

 

Merely bubbles….

 

855FC86C-200A-49CE-8B7E-E964D91DB986

 

Whirling globes

of chemistry

dancing in the air….

for me! 

 

84AC607B-6D59-47CB-8391-EA73EFA9144C

 

Captivating!

There inside,

oh let me in!

Magnificent,

enchanted realm

of yesterthen…

 

Let me dream,

let me send

foolish worry

to the wind…

 

7784BDE2-66C4-4564-8CCE-26E857697F0E

 

Cradled in

your care,

light as air,

to be propelled,

and thus dispelled…..

poof!

 

615F683B-64E9-4FC9-AE60-965CFB53CF3A

 

And with a gentle breath

blown into oblivion..

 

CE6C5415-8CC1-4678-910A-527B894142FD

 

Leaving

but a memory….

Bittersweet.
