Starlit Night

Boat to FairyLand

One starlit night,

So clear and free,

Came whisperings on the gentle breeze.

Dreams from long, 

Long ago.

Forgotten by time, 

Certainly foretold.

My star bright,


Full of life,

Softly called and said.

Fairy Flight on Bubbles

Be careful where you tread  .....

I looked around but couldn't see, 

Non the less I heard indeed.

These words etched in me,

Tread softly .....

Tread lightly...

For in the days you walk upon this earth,

Your are walking on your dreams.

See that no ill-intent, 

No harm,

No unkind words are sent.

To hinder,


Or disbelieve.

The magic, 

The truth,

The Dream.

Have a magical weekend
my friends,
Wherever you may tread.

This is so clearly and freely written as to be a whispering breeze. It's as fragile as a bubble. You have written a beautiful piece, Ruth.

"Be careful where you tread ....."
"See that no ill-intent,
No harm,
No unkind words are sent."

So often it is through the unintended and the misconstrued that one becomes a hinder, so indeed let us "tread softly" with "no ill-intent" for any wherever we may tread.
