She flits between trees on sandaled tippy toes. She gently pats the bark of a tree as if it were an old friend. She hovers and pauses to examine an insect...a piece of bark...a pattern in the mud and then in a flash...flits off again.
She makes me smile in her wings.... the ones Mumma bought from the op shop for $2 ...but mostly her own arm wings she holds out behind her as she scoots about. She delights in her little wee costume made with love by Mumma.
Her bird calls that Daddy has taught her are varied and amusing. She makes my heart sing with her Kookaburra noise complete with tummy slapping belly laugh.
In what seems an instant this fairy flew into my life, sprinkled her golden sunshine on everything she touched and grew far too quickly. I know it's wrong to want to pop her into a jar and watch her glow and flitter about inside. Would that stop time?
She is precious and magic. I will let her grow her wings and fly! Don't fly too fast...or too far my little fairy.
For other star dusty spaces please flit over here.
