Thursday photo prompt – Glade – #writephoto


If you watch carefully you can see them.

They flit from tree to tree, the shadows they hide behind

But more worrying, is they are watching you.

They know where you are because in this glade

You are in their back yard.

Not that they will do you any harm

It’s more they want to protect what is theirs.

So they watch and ensure no harm comes to you

For if it did there would be consternation

As others would come, trample on what is precious

Upset their ecosystem, for everything you see

Has a purpose and a function.

You are a mere mortal human

With not the eyes nor the intellect

To understand the glade.

So tread carefully, know you are being watched,

Enjoy the tranquillity, rest in the shade

Those cooling breezes are them,

Fanning you, keeping you content and out of harms way.

    Ferns always mean faeries. If the Faerie folk trust you, you can rest easy 🙂

  3. Shade in the glade, nice story.

    Well written with such a sense of mystery. These faeries are lovely and harmless if left to their own but interfering sounds like it could result in terrible consequences. I did really love that this tale was mysterious and fey.

    Everybody has a different ecosystem, even among humans. We often end up upsetting another’s lifeline – wilfully or inadvertently.
