A Fairy's Fantasy

Somewhere deep in these enchanted woods a fairy is perched upon a delicate daisy she yawns and stretches her transparent wings as all around her in the dim purple glow of twilight the fireflies shine and dance with the butterflies as they fly away to hide until dawn the frogs and the crickets prepare for their midnight symphony a majestic unicorn approaches the stream to drink from the cool waters. The fairy now rests on this delicate daisy gazing up at the darkening purple sky filled with misty stars that twinkle like diamonds through the tree branches she can just see a perfect crescent moon looking down on her as she drifts off to sleep this fairy lives in a fantasy world so, what wondrous thing can she possibly dream about? Notes - I had just started writing in free verse when I joined Poetry Soup. Before that, all of my poems were rhymed. I was very nervous about posting this as my first poem. It was also my first contest entry. So, that was fun and exciting, and it got me hooked on The Soup!

Dear Kelly, Oh if I could enter the dreaming realm of the a fairies dream what would we see within it my dazzling friend, and what a wonderful picture you've created for your readers to experience. I'm so glad that I choose to read this one, it was worth the chose, I've written about something very close to it before so I'm thrilled with reading about this subject and to know someone else has pondered the same thought as me. Love your imagery and blending of nature to explain your vision of
