The Sacred Whims of Wildling Wood 

The forest floor is strewn 
with high-heeled shoes, for we 
rebel princesses have shucked 
our crowns and chucked 
our corsets and ditched  
the bibbidi-bobbidi
in favor of 
gentler things: 

mirror ponds 
(fairest of them all)
fiery dragon dances 
and fairy 


Linda Lee’s got a fun Quadrille challenge for us over at dVerse. Come play!

    I got my haircut last night and had “fairy hair” put in as small tinsel extensions. it isn’t much but I feel the fairytale within my stressful, busy, chaotic days.

    This one spoke to me. I love those high heels but need to leave them behind on the 10,000 step days. 😉

    Sigh. How beautiful—just the idea of it. Isn’t an enchanted forest the dreamiest thing?

    I also love the notion of sacred whims.

    O yes to mirror ponds of whatever feeling, my response was back to early years and making fairy gardens in school with a mirror pond, gentler days.

  9. Love the rebel princesses shucking and chucking and choosing gentler tales.

    “our crowns and chucked/our corsets and ditched/the bibbidi-bobbidi (boo) ball in favor of
    gentler things,”.. sigh I absolutely love, love this! 😀 You rocked the prompt! 💝💝

  11. Oh,.. I love this… how amazing to find those shoes and know that there are those who ditched them for the gentler things.
