the smoke fairy


dusty powder

grey blue

wisp of

smoke

side view




most of these slips were dyed eons ago
with a powder blue dye.. and only just
now pulled out brushed off and torn
up to make a fairy skirt.. its a bit
too poofy but all the better for
dancing about? little wisps of
smoke dont linger very long.
they just up and away
sometimes and fast.

my cousin was here
with me this week
and now shes gone
back to wisconsin.
i miss her so much
because she hears
the fairies too.
