 Double Fairy Ring

Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.


~ by William Butler Yeats, “The Land of Heart’s Desire,” 1894

The Place Where Rainbows Go

My poem “a Wing & a Prayer” was nominated for a Rhysling Award and was published in the 2007 Rhysling Anthology (showcasing the best science fiction, fantasy & horror poetry). 

 

a Wing & a Prayer

 

If I had wings, I’d carry you

where flying geese with wings of gold

could hold your dreams in safe keeping.

If I had wings, I’d carry you

to the place where rainbows go.

We’d ride on clouds of hump back whales

and see what star fish do.

If I had wings, I’d carry you

to the land of sprites and fairies.

We’d spend all day without a care,

try on lady slippers,

wear lilacs in our hair.

Perhaps we’d learn

the world’s not so cruel

when seen through the eyes of fairies.

For fairies know

that hope survives

upon a wing and a prayer.

Fairy House

Fairy House

Several years ago, I built a fairy house beneath an ancient Red Bud tree in the back yard.  I find that things are moved around in the house fairly regularly.   Every garden needs a fairy house or two.  Crystals, sea shells, pine cones – all make wonderful furniture.

"Featherheart"
was chosen as
the name for
this blog
because when
I remember
to keep my
heart light as
a feather,
life is much
easier.
