#SOL16 Day 28 Tree Fairies

#SOL16 Day 28 Tree Fairies

When I was out for my walk today I  saw a tree that had a magnificent knot hole. All around this knot hole were little holes that had been burrowed out. And a story was born.

Long, long ago there was a land full of tree fairies. Although no one had ever seen one, the old folk would tell stories of magic and lights. It was said that when the moon came out each night, that one only had to make a wish and that a tree fairy would grab the wish and carry it up to the moon. One night as her family took their evening walk, Sue Ellen saw the moon and remembered her grammy telling her the story. So she closed her eyes, and thought, "I wish I could fly." No sooner had the wish left her trembling lips then she began to feel the leaves swirl beneath her feet. The winds danced around her ankles and she felt herself being pulled up off the ground.

Not sure where it is going from here, but, I am enjoying this "seed" from a tree...
