>Festival of Trees: The Magic Of Faerie Trees


I’ve been so busy with nano that I nearly forgot about The Festival of Trees. I’ve missed a few since the first time I entered the fest. So, this afternoon, (Black Friday) I ran outside and got a few shots from our back yard and then searched for something usable in my picture files. I sort of went outside the box….
 The Magic of Faerie Trees 
from our back yard
one of three giant red oaks
perfect for catching a cloud or a rainbow
 an ancient looking bird house
quiet and cozy enough for the tired and wandering fairy
it swings in mid-air
this red oak
looks like a daredevil slide
used by thrill seeking imps
 a beautiful fairy danced
and was loved by the soil
in a magical setting
 welcomed by a king
sheltered from harm
kender-sprites find a home
caught by the rising sun
the invading army
was halted forever
the last seed from the last sea tree
a gift to the king of the last magical land
from the nymphs of Atlantis
 the human male
beloved of the dancing fairy
the soil has made them one
the last magnificent castle
of the last king
to believe in magic

Go check out the other entries for this festival over at Windy Willow…..

*the first three pics are from our back yard, the remaining ones are from Biltmore House in Asheville, NC*


About CuriousCat

I love to learn new things-anything from how to create a junk journal to the way light moves through space; why cats present their behinds to us to the effects of chemicals on our endocrine system. If it interests me, I can spend hours reading and learning about it.
