A Poem a Day (76): Fairy dust


A flash poem written for JD Mader's 2minutes go writingexercise... It's every Friday-Sunday, so if you fancy writing something - whatever you feel like - head over there, or just read the flash fiction and poetry.




Fairy dust

You brought me scarlet lights
Woven into a fairy garland scrawl.
A sparkling symbol of things unsaid;
Something to shine out the dark.

Your paper hands threw fast shapes,
Skittering madcap scenes across walls
For my childish delight. I tried to catch this
Affection in a jar like the dance of fireflies.
