Don’t Kill the Fairies!

“Every time a child says it doesn’t believe in fairies, a fairy falls down dead,” said Peter Pan.

Do you believe?

Since the beautiful Samara showers began in early Spring, I have had faeries on my mind, invading my thoughts and stirring my soul.

With childish glee

and fancy flight

They dot the sky

to night’s delight.

Like tinkling bells

their laughter rings,

they whirl and twirl

on gossamer wings!

“Do you believe,”

she whispers low.

”Can you follow me

where’er I go?

(Come, Come!”)

A blink, and gone,

she out of sight,

a spiral string

of twinkling light

winds its way to

heaven,

as there I stand

mouth agape, eyes wide,

my faerie soul swelling with pride.

Would that I, my wings would sprout,

and arms spread wide thus leap and shout

to leave this terra far below and rise to join celestial glow.

(Please, please don’t kill the faeries. Quick, clap your hands together three times!)

Remembering a Voice of Truth

AAF5AD5D-BB9D-47E8-BA46-1BA1CE5459C4

 

A voice of reason,

truth and love,

defying the cold

face of fear

manifest as hate

and indifference-

with strength,

rising against the

tide of separatism

to illuminate the

hope of a united

humanity,

a world without

judgment, pride,

prejudice or ignorance.

In every decade,

a voice to rise above

the din of anger

like the deafening

whisper of eternity,

a flame all too soon

snuffed by the

bitter breath of

dark rage.

Where is our voice?

Who is our hope,

to guide, to coax

to teach, to lead

in these days

growing darker

moment by moment?

Be the voice,

the hope, the prayer.

Speak,  cry, sing

and shout, for

without a single voice

there will be no calling

the Light Warriors forth;

and the silence will be

loud as death

as humanity

folds in upon itself in

in fear and trembling.

Do not let their courage,

wisdom and hope

have been in vain….
