Gentle arbours what do you see

What secrets do you arbours keep, what would you tell us if you would speak.Tales and history down the years would they encumber and wreath us with tears.

laced in fog

In early morning’s drape of lacy fog you watch  an early riser and his dog wandering under your leafy ceiling delighting in an ethereal feeling.

Peeping from the branches green tiny pixies can be seen preparing a byre for their fairy queen. Later as the sun climbs high and birds wield about in the blue skies. Workers sit and take their rest, in the shadows that your leaves and branches cast the best.

Skipping carefree homeward bound amid your trunks school children can be found. Happy games they like to play at the end of their school day.

After tea the mother’s stroll with their babes in prams they roll. Innocent eyes first glances see of lush green leaves above them as a canopy. Tiny fingers, tiny toes basking in the warm evening sun’s glow.

As the night descends the birds beginning to roost and join all their friends. The woodland creatures prance around in one last play before, for safety they go to ground. They all love their arbours cover as do now the human nocturnal lovers. They, all full of passion join their bodies lips and groin. The soft green grass supports their backs they watch the star through the branches cracks. Their boudoir all free and clean this arbour which is all fresh and green.

What secrets do you arbours keep, what would you tell us if you would speak.Tales and history down the years would they encumber and wreath us with smiles and tears.

    Oh, willowdot, I can see why Martin Shone just adores your work! I feel as if a dear fairy grandmother had just rocked me to sleep after reading this post. I am in the Magic Forest, I know I am! Your photo, Cathedral of blue and green, looks exactly like a little area behind the end of my gravel driveway in April. Totally enchanted! And, yes, my arbours do contain a tribe of Little People and magic dragonfiles and dancing frogs, waltzing turtles, car-wheeling bunnies, and rocking and rolling nuthatches emceed by bossy bluejays and cardinals.

      Thank you granbee I think you and I both have lives populated with lots of “others” in fact I love the “others” so much that when they let me join them and write about them I do not ever want to come back out of their world! Yes we have blue bells in April right now I have snow drops defiantly holding their own against the cold snap we are now enduring, crocuses are pushing their through and all the little people and others are dashing about helping, warming and protecting gentle immature plants. I have really really enjoyed all your work and though written in a different tongue to mine , you obviously being more learned and confident in “other” languages and writings.
      I have enclosed two stories the “other folk” have allowed me to write. I hope you might like then if not no matter. and my second and more recent visit I hope you are having a good day.xx

      Thank you I just though of a days’ worth of what trees would witness, it is UN-imagiginable how much they see over their life spans. Thank you for visiting and commenting, you are always welcome. I hope you are having a good day

      I just had this idea about what the trees have to witness daily and of course the little fairies, pixies and elves that live in their branches. We must not forget those!! xx

      Trees give us so much more just oxygen and shade, so I thought I would map out a day in their life …not to mention the pixies elves and fairies!! 😀 xx
