Ad libs alluding to the image

Mother Nature

note the sorrow in her look

clutching straws… so sad…

~~

crying

humanities loss

don’t lose her


HAIKU

~~~~~~
fairies… magic
mother natures workers
paid in wondrous spells

~~~~~~

have you looked…
the bottom of your garden
a fairy… alone…
now sitting on your shoulder…
adding magic to your words…

MY FRIENDS

I wish my Fairy friend was here, right at this moment. Pow! She’s here, with friends, begging, I write this, their comment. Tis Fairy day, beware some spells, but enjoy our magic. First, our condolences to all who suffered losses, tragic! For losses natural, accidental, premeditated terrorism, murder. If within our power we’d cast a spell, PEACE, bringing back order. Its not something we felt we had too, more than that, were begging Mick, To convey heartfelt thoughts to all true life, let peace prevail, no trick. Okay the purpose of our visit done, our thanks to Mick for wishing.  Before we flit back into our books we picked a rose, were not into kissing. The rose, it holds a spell, truelove, peace, tis you humans who must learn how to release it. Hark! We hear Colleens friends calling, the swamp Fairies, beckoning us home, good bye, we fly.

nature… is magic
used to be perfection
human follies rule

My Fairy friends, their thoughts echo mine, if only I had their magic, what spells I would cast. Forever more, no war, no discrimination, love for all life, anything I missed, please, feel free, remind me.  I hasten to add I am no pacifist, I would if asked, fight to save our country, but I would ask why, when words, if used wisely, have saved many threats, including war, Cuba, indeed wisely.

if magic worked
if only… one day… to last…
forever

  1. Mick! The fairy nymphs have spoken to you much in the same way they speak to me. You see, for me, the fairies are the protectors of nature and our beloved earth. Their message is clear – we, humans must change our ways. That is the message they are trying to tell us. Climate change is real, and our earth and animals are suffering at our hands. Your poetry is haunting and beautiful… your gift from the fairies! ❤
