Magical Faerie Water Fall

A magical feeling unknown anywhere else lingered at the faerie waterfall This was the gentle resting place of all worn-out muses and elves, after all A mystical silence filtered over each caregiver, lingering over each rose in bloom King and Queen Council had ruled no interlopers ever, could enter this sacred place This astral valley and heavenly meadow full of strawberries was given to them by God’s good grace. Summer day break was lighting up the valley by the warm happy shine of a shimmery white moon Day young, the caregiving faeries flitted around excitedly, knowing the day was full of potential. Hope, love, compassion and good spirited fun here was terminally quintessential As new souls were brought here to nourish and love fully, before they entered mother’s womb. Everything at Faerie Valley was orchestrated, to be heavenly-inspired, helpful and tender sweet. Dream-state-magic, giving the waiting families and neonates a dream-state place to meet When the birthing day arrives, there is a lot less surprise, and jubilant rejoicing from the womb. Hark! What is that I hear? It is faerie flutist’s sweet note music, calling us to listen to love’s call. A baby is being born, this one with those enormous brown eyes, the one whose last name will be Hall. Whisked away, leaving a trail of marigolds, and yellow buttercups, in a methodical magical state of faerie zoom, We reach the hospital in the nick of time, and deliver our pretty babe, to parents who are pining. When we newly-deigned stork magicians float back to the faerie waterfall, every elf and nymph is shining. A leprechaun musician known by all us first week’s elves as Lars congratulates us, one and all. Did you get a birth announcement? He asks, but we are shocked, not knowing it was essential. Faerie Queen said it is a bit of a tradition, but you are new, so this time it is not quintessential. The parents were so excited to wrap the baby up, count his toes, and listen to his baby heartbeat. We newbies felt happy, excited, enthusiastically crazy about our job, and sixteen inches tall. Glad to be a part of this excitement, they allowed us a dip our toes into the secret faerie waterfall. There was a celebratory banquet with goodies in the Hand Maiden’s Reception Hall. We were both talking about the delivery over and over, completely over the moon. Next time, get the birth announcement the queen said, so it was important after all.

Another "fav"; I especially love this line: "methodical magical state of faerie zoom"; perfect description. Great imagery here and it makes for a live visual impact. A great poem.

Thank you M.L. I was in a rather impressive "let's try and do something about faeries, and babies, and throw in a bunch of imagery which I never feel I do well" mood.

Love the idea of this "gentle resting place of all worn-out muses and elves". A sweet escape from this crazy world... ;)

I had lots of time to write yesterday as many of my classes were cancelled due to incessant testing of the children who are already sick of it.

The dates you see on the poems are the days I write them. I have no storehouse, so I am lucky I do not require more than 5.5 hours of sleep a night.
