When Absent-minded Fairies Come to Call

As the Frost Fairies frolicked

in the garden last night,

whether giddy amnesia or fanciful flight

distracted them, humans will never discover –

but their magical Frost Wand  was never recovered!

    I just love your poetry to photos, Melody. You state so much in so few words. I could see in my mind’s eye the frolicking of the faeries! Can’t wait for your next piece. 🙂 Eric

      🙂 Time crunch – I almost didn’t make my quota today, and may not for tomorrow – yikes!

        Deb and I were marveling about your daily poetry output! You must write in your sleep.

        Not quite. I usually write in the evening and schedule, but I haven’t been home in the evening for almost 2 weeks – and it is catching up to me!! Too many late nights and away from home obligations – haven’t been to anyone’s blogs for a few days…
