Idle Fairy Thoughts

I hope you enjoy Molly Hogan’s lovely fairy poem. I love her petalled paths, wayward blossoms and moonshine shield. Have a great weekend!

Nix the comfort zone


Walking through the woods this fall, I’ve discovered multitudes of mushrooms in all shapes and sizes. This particularly delicate one, the only one of its kind I’ve seen, caught my fancy and sent my thoughts swirling to the world of fairies.dscn7877After the festivities end
and dawn’s light fringes the sky,
who tucks away
the fairy paraphernalia
so no discerning human eye
casts a canny glance
at petalled paths
and circled stones?

Flush with late night revelry,
trailing dew-laden feet and
drooping wings,
might the sleepy wee folk
a wayward blossom
or other tell-tale sign-
perhaps this purple-ribbed
fairy parasol,
a dainty moonshine shield,
now illuminated
in sunshine’s glow
above an oddly tidy
bed of moss?
