A 'Wee Folks' Winter's Day.
Over the last few weeks, the winter had cast upon us the wonders and the beauty that beckoning flakes of snow can truly provide. Our landscape has been adorned with a dazzling, glistening array of breathtaking splendour. The sights, the sounds, the sheer magic of these 'picture postcard' times, has been firmly ingrained into my mind. Pleasant times, pleasant memories.
The childlike joy of the beautiful fairy princess and the garden gnome has filled my heart with thoughts of a better way, a better time for all of us who embrace the magnificence that nature offers. I watched them play, I heard them laugh. 'The wee folks', at peace with the world, at peace with themselves.
So there they were. The wee folks. Such kind and caring gentle creatures. Soon they lay down in the snow. The 'snow fairy' made a 'snow angel'. The beautiful fairy princess, the garden gnome and their friends, played until the dark shadows of impending night, signalled the end of another perfect day.
The snow has been melting. The hearts of the beautiful fairy princess and the garden gnome have been melting in the warm love they have for each other.
