SILKEN WEBS and FAERIE FANTASIES

NOTES ON JUNE 10, 2020 by T. Blen Parker

DEW reveals silken webs

engulfed in early morning fog

spun in afternoon sunshine,

woven by Celtic Forest Faeries

exhausted from dancing

in the late strawberry moonlight,

Faerie Fantasies filling their dreams.

Sheer delight, beathtaking sight

Early morning discovery

of glistening quilts by the dozens

filling the greening expanse

of carefree dandelion puffs

and deadly black cap mushrooms

emerging on the lawn.

The paradox of life,

north/south,

young/old,

republican/democrat,

respect/insult,

hungry/fully fed,

ignorant/educated,

black/white,

Rule of Law/chaos

lies/truth,

power/sheer helplessness.

We were all energized

Now all are exhausted.

What mix of reality or fantasy

will YOU choose,

going forward from today?
