An Unfinished Fairy Fable


An Unfinished Fairy Fable

Isabeau delights in a magical dance
in the twilight of the moonlight under
a canopy of billions of glittering stars.
The mysterious Fay waves her
magic wand, and, behold!
a golden glow illuminates the forest.
As nightfall envelops the garden,
shimmering fireflies and
incandescent woodland creatures appear.
The forest fills with excitement,
as pixie fairies transform the
garden patch into a shimmering
brilliance that is other-worldly.
The spicy cedar fills the air...
baubles and treats hang from the evergreens.
Take a deep breath in…
allow the crisp air to evoke
childhood memories and fill you with joy!
As the sprites sip from the gleaming magic fountain,
they sense a presence off in the distance.
Two radiant Sapphire diamonds return their gaze.
Moonlight glistens across the garden,
creating a golden glow of enchantment,
as it reflects in the luminous eyes of Navarre.
The forest is becalmed with silence.

The formless divine guardian safeguards
all spirits in the sphere of sleep.
The forest now slumbers in calm trust
while fanciful dreams transpire.

As Navarre awakens, he searches
the bright morning sky.
Memories hold fast as last night's
celebrations linger close to his heart.
There, so high, LadyHawke soars above
the meandering paths, gazing down at
Navarre from the distant outlying blue.
A ghost-like image in his mind's eye
reveals the beautiful terrestrial Isabeau
walking close beside him as they
cross the forest floor.
Yet now, in the light of day,
she is no longer earthbound, and she flies as
an unrestricted captive.
