BELIEVE IN FAIRIES
spent many a day in woods, reciting,
listening to nature, meditating.
passers by stop, some stop to listen,
some to ask why, without hesitation,
my reply, for the fairies,
and they laugh till they cry.
i join in their laughter, for I am happy,
to hear people laughing
in a world filled with fear.
before they walk on, I beg,
stop a while longer, listen,
look, now tell me, you agree,
not in fairies, but in nature,
its sounds, and what you see.
i bid them good day,
but before they did go,
they looked where they trod,
and spotted that tiny pink rose.
when they looked up I was gone,
for I was that fairy all along.
