Fairie Woods

A barking dog

the hidden feast

wandering as a

lonely beast…

seeking, hungry,

until he sees,

a lively fairie

floating on the breeze.

Tell me

wee one

where shall I find,

a place to rest,

for such a time,

dry and safe

from the dark night?

The fairie twittered

back and forth,

humming sprightly

catching its breath,

shimmering slightly,

the fairie said…

just here in the woods,

Ill lead you to a

spot so fair,

by the stream,

its safest there.

The big oak stands

dry and warm within…

So the dog did find a

hollowed tree…

Ahhh he sighed,

settling in -sleepily.

Still hungry, he sought

the hidden feast,

his tummy rumbled…

for a bite.

But now, amidst

the darkest night,

in fairie woods

he saw a sprite.

Hello there, dog

called the bright light,

whirring and clicking,

flying near…

the light bobbed and

disappeared.

Feeling sad and hungrier still,

the dog lay his head

down, ready for sleep.

All at once,

he heard a peep,

hmmm now, well what is

this?

He asked…

muffled and hidden

he heard, then,

a slight shuffling sound.

I wonder– can I eat this?

In the dark…

he licked his chops

at the thought,

of a meal…

But he sat very still,

until the sound became real.

At last it was clear,

the steps sounded near.

Here were fairies

carrying food,

berries and nuts

and pretty flowers, too!

They placed it before him,

saying softly…

here oh dog,

is a simple repast,

we thought you’d be

hungry,

as night shadows

are cast.

Feel safe now,

and rest your head,

for all is not lost.

When Sun shines

the morrow,

we’ll guide you home,

for now please eat

and bed in our tree,

all is well,

and we shall help thee.

As promised by the

tiny people,

the morning Sun was

a welcome sight,

they came and guided

him through

the woods…

by the stream,

to the road

from whence he came.

 

Grief Avails Itself

From faraway I hear the call,

whispering friendships

telling all…

Above and beyond

relaying the vibe,

coming from…

my long lost tribe.

How do I miss them?

May I count the ways…

Secrets shared on Summer Days,

Phone calls made

to share the light,

joining in laughter

late into night.

Other times, other climes,

dwelling in sadness

with a hint…

of quiet madness.

Dial the phone,

but they aren’t there…

realization sets in,

its just not fair.

Heartbreak…

leaves us prone,

silently crying,

understanding marred…

they aren’t here,

but we still are.
