the faerie’s dance

….the words this week came from Deb in the Peppermint Creek Collective’s 51st Scavenger Hunt Game…..

…here are Deb’s irresistible 15 words: anniversary, home, snow, cast, stocking, feather, fairy, wispy, sparkle, glass, wee, river, stripe, time, spirit….

…..and here’s the story that I wrote using her words…….

“the faerie’s dance”

always on time
no fairy ever wanted to miss
the arrival of the annual anniversary dance
commencing on the first stroke of midnight


they spirited their partners across the hardwood floor
wearing striped woolen stockings
and tiny glass slippers
on their fleet fairy feet


swirling across the floor
in a feather weight faerie waltz
their wee wispy wings
sparkling with magic


and when it was all over
and they headed home
streaming out of the room
like a graceful winding river


they cast
a bit
of pixie dust
behind them
and twirled
in the air
like an enchanted snow
