Fairy World

you took me to a world
a world where we can hold out a hand,
offer arms to hug,
be patient while heart heals,
expels pain caused by indifference,
the world of Hansel and Gretel

you took me to a world
a world where life turns out differently
in the presence of a fairy godmother
where one could choose to be good
regardless and despite,
the world of Cinderella
and Sleeping Beauty

you took me to a world
a world where possibilities are endless
where information, stories, thoughts
and feelings are unlike
anything else in this world
you took me to a world
a world of reading

NaPoWriMo Day 15 – https://www.napowrimo.net/day-fifteen-7/

Think about a habit you picked up from one of your parents, and then write a piece that explores an early memory of your parent engaged in that habit, before shifting into writing about yourself engaging in the same habit.

  1. This touches on the power of books and I too have an abiding love and relationship with those books that can transport me to places and times either in this world or a make-believe one!! Love it!

  2. Oh, SweetMich!!! This is so beautiful and fun and brings up good memories! It’s wonderful how stories and books impact our lives so positively from the first read. And how we love to share them with others, especially the children in our lives. 🙂
    These fairy tales and other stories taught us about life, how to respond to life’s challenges, that it was okay to express our feelings, and gave us joy and hope. What amazing worlds to “escape” into for awhile…often prompting us to dream our own personal dreams. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Carolyn, reading at an early age gave me the ability to dream and hope and believe. And that’s why fairy tales, (though others regard too much, too good, too unrealistic) i still encourage parents to read it along with their little ones, cos it will encourage the kids to hope even when it is hopeless and love when there is nothing to love and choose to be good even when you are sorrounded by “not so good” people..
