Gnomes and a fairy tale

The gnomes totter in to watch her turn nights
 Her hair in flames, and people around looking in
 The freak is once again at it - they laugh
 While she stares glass-eyed; gnomes spell treasure time..

 Forests perch pretty on her pillow, and guard
 Night sounds lullaby their hushed whispers
 Little rivulets of silent sadness meander slowly
 Down her past, that crazy, nightmarish childhood

 And then at midnight, the fairies dance in
 When the moon powder down little stars on her
 The sadness is over, they chorus the night
 And little sacks opened, the gnomes hand out joy

 Her soul in hundred fragments; wandering gypsies, 
 She is scattered in tales, bundled on folk lore
 The king of dreams, and the queen of tragedies
 They are all her, the jester with no big mission

 She laughs, her mirth wrapped around moon beams
 The tears she hides go rolling down brown dirt paths
 For now she hauls up the joy she can sack forward
 Nightmares and trolls kept away till the humans wake up…

    "The sadness is over, they chorus the night And little sacks opened, the gnomes hand out joy" What a beautiful image! I've read this one before, but had to is so brilliant. " The tears she hides go rolling down brown dirt paths"..I admire her intriguing dreamy and sorrowful, though joyful as well. I think I can relate with her in some ways. Always, Laura

    This is the magic of the night, when fairies lift the heart and soul; let it be enjoyed, at least till dawn arrives. Beautiful and captivating, Bindu! /x/ paul
