Faerie Gardens in the Neighborhood

Neighborhood faerie gardens surround me,
in my new home life is peaceful and sweet,
birds sing in the tree close to my window,
Lunar bathes my room as I fall asleep.

Across the street two lovely gardens grow,
one is under a huge old faerie tree,
the next garden has lilacs and roses,
with lots of small flowers where it’s shady.

In my brother’s back yard are two gardens
full of roses and beautiful flowers,
where small birds build hidden nests deep within,
protected from hot sunshine or spring showers.

Faerie gardens along the street
attract many little souls that have wings,
birds, bees, butterflies, and maybe faeries,
who dance at night, in moonlit faerie rings.

Yes, even adults will use imagination
to escape from too much stress and hard times,
and remember childhood days of belief
in dragons, faeries, and magical chimes.

Yet, I still believe in those little souls,
who love nature and sing their joyful song,
it makes life brighter to know they exist,
not just beyond the veil, but, here all along.

I have always liked to write.It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. Thank you for visiting.

    So glad things are settling and you are appreciating your new surroundings. Nature always brings us back to our fundamental being and with that the beauty of all within it. Nature spirits abide in all that surrounds us, their tasks and passion so easily brings a smile when we are down or stressed. A lovely expression Phyllis. take care

    There is always something so magical with fairies and Angels. It taps into our creative and imaginative side. Nature plays a great part in that realization as well. Lovely piece my friend.
