In the fairyland forest
I find my joy, my inner child.
I can’t stop smiling.
Such abundant beauty in all I see
With eyes of innocence.
With Ella puppy’s guidance we
find a comfortable home,
A place to rest and share.
The ground is soft and fragrant of the forest.
I find the most delightful piece of fungus, like seaweed,
such a beautiful specimen.
The wind waves in the trees and I am alerted to it through the sound.
We rest now acknowledging it and giving our thanks and love back
to this magical space.
Wind waves in the magical forest
