Within the magical pages of a book is an invitation to shake off our sensibilities, clap our hands and shout that Yes! We believe in fairies! Perhaps with a bit of pixie dust and a great deal of courage, we might also fly.
Thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s Photo Play and Poetry Prompt. We enjoyed the imaginative pictures and poetry shared by our community:
In this well-timed shot, Richard captured a dragonfly pausing for a moment to show off his bronze wings. A tiny Tengu ready to take flight, skyrocketing toward the sun.
In Cinderella’s troubled tale, we feel empathy for the hard-working gal with an indomitable spirit. In this photo by Darlene, instead of a glass slipper Cinderella lost a work boot.
Here is a poem Donna contributed, inspired by the sights and sounds of the imaginary realm and childlike wonderment:
Can you hear them
In the clearing of the forest?
And the fluttering
Of playful wings.
The thicket flickers
With sprinkled flecks of gold,
Pixie powder spread about.
The tales they tell
Of whimsical worlds
A juvenile fascination
With which to wander from the world’s woes;
Believe in the fairies,
Procure the fantasies.
See the world
Through their eyes,
The sparkle of sun kissed dew
Set upon the forest floor.
