Part Fairy


I met a little girl
walking along an autumn forest

her voice some human
 some fairy
 
I said:
I think you are part fairy

she replied:
I know I am


bits of her words were entirely human and English
others flew away before I could hear them
it was as though they were carried off by butterfly wings
words laced with music, lyrical

~

the autumn forest:

    1. thank you Lisa. This was an actual experience a few days ago. I drove to the North Fork to stay in a friends wee cabin that is off the GRID, no power, phones, computer. The first night i met this young girl and our conversation inspired this drawing.

    1. the forest is near a place i stayed last week
      a wee cabin off the grid at the foothills of the NW entrance of Glacier National Park. A friends cabin.
      The poem is a true story, the first night at the cabin i was walking along the forest and met a little girl with her father and that was our conversation. her response surprised me and brought me joy.
      That is how the drawing came to life.

      I also live with forest, ponds and meadows in a wee cabin, but i have plumbing and electricity and a phone. I love it here.

      sweet weekend to you.

  14. Okay, I am lost. I do not understand. Maybe I have been away from the forest for too long.
