Up in the pine-scent mountains and down along the salty seasides you will find large seed-pods of nature fairies. Unlike the ones found in city, these beautiful mountain dandelions stand 2-3 feet high and are as big a round as a baseball.
To the unaware, they go almost unoticed. But to those who are alive to the magic of the universe, you can sense their call as you pass by, “Wishes! Wishes! Come tell us your wishes and we’ll make them come true!”
Gently I enfold a handful of these little white nature fairies into my palms and whisper my wishes to them; I blow them up and out onto the fragrant breezes. Dancing merrily in the winds, with the purpose of a secret mission, they disperse into the vast endless sky of possibility.
At the close of the day, a knowing smile etches it’s way across my sun-weathered face as I remember my fairy friends, radiant with the promise of sunlight!
