Fighting Faeries, Pugnacious Pixies and Angels on Guard.

Perhaps war is a strong word for the windy, dusty, little fairies that twist around the corner of our house and wrap around my saplings looking for trouble in paradise. I can almost hear the sound of laughter or is miniature weaponry changing the frequency into a gently slashing hiss? Uninvited, these are the naughty ones perhaps bouncing from heaven maybe even tossed intentionally into our garden. 

Maybe they were angels once and now that summer is here, they will redeem themselves by mellowing out and offering up wildflowers as penance. Do you think good angels are battling these sprites? Whatever it is that floats wildly into the afternoon yard dissipates by twilight. It’s as if they crawl into bed, pull up the covers and prepare to dream of victory while slumbering under the stars. 


  1. What a lovely thought.
    But we used to call the windy dusty fairy that twist around the coroners of our house Dust Devils. Which is more truthful but not as artistic as your post today.

  2. Are those what them flashing dots are I always see floating around right there in front of my nose? I see them all the time.

  3. Like a dandelion that's gone to seed? Hate those!

  4. You have such a wonderful imagination, Eve!

  5. Hi Eve,

    Lucid imagery, my illustrious friend. The wee folks in my garden are your friends. They know of only good. Thank you, Eve.

    Enchanted, magical wishes, your way,

    Gary :)

  6. Lovely imagery, Eve!

    We call them dust devils too.

  7. I really don’t like those pesky dust devils, they cause all kinds of havoc.

  8. I've found that moving to a new project usually fixes any block I run into. Great post!
