The Fairy Garden

For Grandma

Whispers flutter in the leaves

and I hear them tell me memories,

little snapshots seen through translucent wings,

the greying hair upon the fairy queen’s crown.

It wasn’t but an instant ago,

a blink– a beat of tiny lace wings,

that she was here among us all.

Gone—gone to her realm,

gone—vanished to her kingdom,

leaving us with mere flutters,

little whispers of a life long loved,

short in time,

a hummingbird hover,

but sweet in all that she breathed.

Life still dances on

in tiny thatched fairy huts.

-Eva M.M

Thank you all for reading and sharing your thoughts with me in the comments. This poem, in particular, is a very personal poem but even for those of you who do not know why it might be such a personal poem, I think that the emotion in it can still be understood and felt.

” Me and the pen, we are one. If its ink would cease to flow, my ink would cease to flow.”
