To Fairy Tales

An ode to fairy tales (and poetry)…or why I like writing so very, very much.

To Fairy Tales

Once, I thought,
upon a time,
about a place
when and where
fairies tempted butterflies
to flit between the whiskers
of snoring trolls,
sunlight slid
off dragon wings
like melted gold,
and wizards,
with great beards,
roamed dark places
that men feared,
teaching wolves to talk,
and farm boys
to brandish swords,
but, happily, I’ve discovered
the thickest magic
rests in the shadow
of the closest tree,
mine to breathe and feel
today, even now, and ever after.
