Gossamer Wings

ARTWORK by ULRIKE BOLENZ
For Magpie Tales

Gossamer wings born in Fae air
Resting on flowers
First here then there
Gossamer wings born in Fae air

Flying close as she dares
Wings flit magic showers
Gossamer wings born in Fae air
Fairy dusts the flowers

I enjoyed this Gail..I could feel her flutter about.

Nice write. Alex beat me to the punch on the pollen thing. Bees have been on my mind lately.

Love the hybrid feeling... a creature living away from her own land, and working hard to keep the new world going. May the dusting go well!

I like the "flying as close as she dares" line. It gives me a great visual.

Such a vital lynchpin of the bioweb , no dragon fly , no flowers , both in a literal and metaphorical sense ...
