wayward faeries

they breathe
in birdsong,
the gentle longing
for pocket-petal
fall on
delicate ears.

they laugh
in flowers,
the quiet hours
of morning when the
sun smiles a golden
into the sky.

    De — if you’ve never read this, you will enjoy. Your poem made me think of it. Denise Levertov’s “Claritas”


  2. That makes me happy just reading it!

    Sometimes your poems are filled with such whimsy that I think your site is really living up to its name. Although, I’d read your poetry regardless of the website’s name, De. Happy Tuesday.

    That hiccup section is priceless. 🙂 Have you watched all the animated Tinkerbell movies? LOVE them.
