Her First Day Back from Vacation

Blue Monarch Faerie had been vacationing in the Bahamas So relaxed and pliable now, quite unlike her double mama’s. Just wait ‘til you get back, one said over her scratchy I-phone. They are hovering near your mushroom, some not alone. She was bombarded upon wakening the very next day. They had come from field, meadow, woods, quite far away. There was a smooth-talking snail who wanted all of her time. He spoke in riddles, jokes, short stories, and gave her a rhyme. Surrounded by her favorite flowers of lilies, and cone flowers too. She decided all of this attention should be okay as admirers grew. There were two curious squirrels and a caustic cawing blue jay. She saw a miniature raccoon stealthily sneaking her way. A sassy salamander and red tree frog were chirping her name. She asked them all for some space, but they became a tight frame. Come on! She told them. I have to have some breathing room okay? This was her first day back from vacation. Her very first day!

There goes your amazing imagination again - I think you are absolutely amazing and applaud your deep and enthralling fantasy tales you write for us, and of course for yourself. Blessings and hugs my friend. Jennifer.

Thank you so much Jennifer. This is lovely to read; I wish I could get ALL of this on a T-shirt. I would be boastful and funny and slap my children in the face with it, because they do not treat me like my grandchildren who think I am brilliant and funny. They treat me like a little SHORT goof pot. They are all taller by a head.
