November's Twinkle Fairy


Outside was I one evening
with my jacket on,
gazing at the pumpkin 
still out there on my lawn
with its face carved in a grin.
It was November first.
A sad mood I was in.

For Halloween was over,
and October’s pretty days
of brilliant reds and yellows
would turn to browns and greys.
I went to get the pumpkin
to toss it in the trash.
Behind it I caught sight
of a bright and tiny flash.

I thought perhaps my eyes
were playing tricks on me.
The flash had arms and legs
and wings with which to flee.
It was a little fairy,
and she used a wand to show
a message made of sparkles
to set my heart aglow.

Her twinkling wand spelled out
“Be happy for this reason:
Soon will be Thanksgiving
and then the Christmas season.”
November’s Twinkle Fairy
appeared to me that day
to show the season’s sweetness
before she flew away!

What a cute poem Andrea, I wish there were fairies, although some believe there are, they are so sweet, although that makes me think of the mischievous Tinkerbell! Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

I just let the rhyming take me where the story went.I had no idea I would end it this way! thanks!

Awww! I like. Very twinkly! I like her peeping round the bins! Mine was a bit dark - I think I was a bit sad to see November so soon! You guys have thanksgiving to look forward to of course. November’s a cold run-in for us once Guy Fawkes night is over on the 5th. Mind you, November did remind me yesterday that it can be beautiful - I saw so many gorgeous autumn colours still out and about. :-)
