when your eyes are open
there is always so much to discover.
“we dance round in a ring and suppose,
but the secret sits in the middle and knows.”
when grandie v and i
have finished building our indoor winter fairy village
with jewels and feathers and sparkles, a flower vine swing, love tape, and puff ball beds
it is very important to write about it and invite them to move in tonight.
“when I sound the fairy call, gather here in silent meeting,
chin to knee on the orchard wall, cooled with dew and cherries eating.
merry, merry, take a cherry, mine are sounder, mine are rounder,
mine are sweeter for the eater, when the dews fall, and you’ll be fairies all.”
one day gerald mysteriously appeared
with a note and a friendly greeting
left by an unknown visitor
he moved into
the fairy community at my cottage
i know they welcomed him
with open arms and open doors.
“happiness often sneaks in
through a door you didn’t know you left open.”
