Hibiscus Dish Wish


Fairy satellite dishes —
Hibiscus dishes — bring wishes,
Bored fairy wing swishes.
Then she hears a message from Queen Mab.
Fairy Della no longer sad and drab —
Delighted with the urgent mission,
Della hurries with an exciting frisson:
She has the spring fairy ball to plan.
She must hide the location from man.
Della has more spring in her step
And joy in the plan kept.
Counting on fingers — only 20 days left.
All the fairies are humming,
Woo-hoo, spring is coming!!

A little rhyming inspired by Dr. Seuss
whose birthday is coming tomorrow I’ve heard. The title is a nod to his Ish Wish Dish. πŸ™‚

    • Yes, we were certainly surrounded by sparkles, joy and dancing winged visions. πŸ™‚ Thank you, Maryrose!! I hope spring has arrived in Texas. It’s even warm here, today. Hugs, Brenda


  2. #LoveIt – Fairy satellite dishes – what a beautiful way of describing them (Gorgeous picture too BTW)

    I was thinking Dr Seuss all the way through and then got to the end and saw your mini correlation.. lol



    • Wasn’t it an amazing flower? It was on a whole big bush in florida, full and green, but it was the only bloom. All the rest were tightly furled, still buds. This one bloom heralded the arrival of spring. Sadly we have to wait so much longer up in New England. But the kids and I had a lovely break in Florida. πŸ™‚ Thanks for commenting, I treasure your words. Warmly, Brenda


    • I am so glad that you remembered his birthday and gave a little tribute to his great rhymes. They are very valuable tools of learning and so enjoyable, too. I liked “Ish wish dish,” but loved this beautiful fairy poem and photograph of the brilliant fuschia satellite dish! Hugs, Robin


      • I like the ideas that fairies pass messages through the fairy satellite dishes. I have a strange brain, as many have pointed out. LOL Thanks for another very thoughtful comment, Robin! Hugs, Brenda


  3. Such a sweet and lovely poem Brenda! And the most beautiful flower! You really have a very vivid imagination! You must be a fun person to be around! πŸ™‚
