Our faerie family decided today that they could return to their home.
They still have some cleanup to do, but they gathered in their garden to thank me and all of you for supporting them during Hurricane Hermine.
They’d so admired one of my decorative plates that I presented it to them as a gift. I think it will be appreciated by the wee folk more than it ever was by me. And it makes a colorful backdrop for their garden.
Quite frankly, it was time they moved out. It’s not that I didn’t want them staying in the house, but the cats were having a hard time remembering that they’d pledged not to eat them. I can’t imagine the bad karma that might ensue from having one’s cats devour a fae family.
Creeping curving clef
Bold stroke twining garden’s staff
In the key of green
Floral fusion blooms
A visual melody
Music to the eyes
Strains softly entwine
Noted lines in four four time
I found these lurking in my front yard.
The best thing about photographing flowers is that, for the most part, they remain stationary.
And they never blink or need their makeup refreshed.
And they make me happy. We need more happy.
Softly tapping foot
Should signal my impatience
Yet here I still wait.
Drumming fingers, too provide
A clue I’m restless.
However no relief comes.
Waiting still. Patience.
Grasshopper, you sneak
Gobbling up every leaf
But you, too must eat to live
Just dine elsewhere, please.
