I am Woke



Restless light sleep as I toss in the humid night air. Wondering what is tugging at my dreams and pulling me awake. I quietly plod to the bathroom, but for some reason do not turn on the light. My eyes adjust to the velvet night outside the window, and I see it. Magical fairies dancing in the branches of the trees with their lanterns. They climb and climb and climb until they are at the very top against the black silhouette of heavy leaves.  This celebration is what must have woke me.

My granddaughter wants to be a fairy when she grows up. We hate for someone to tell her it’s not possible. She sees them too.

Fireflies are one of natures greatest wonders.

If we have fairies here I have never been able to see them. Maybe I am just not woke to them.

A spiritual trip to the window at night. I suppose many things wake us up in the night!

Dancing fireflies can light the way for the wee folk. Such a lovely show would be worth catching.

Watching masses of fireflies can feel like drinking magic through a heart straw.
I think they want you to see them.

Of course it did. Such joy would wake anyone.

Sounds like a warm, fuzzy feeling of wonder !
None of those here yet. At least we have leaves! Would be nice to get over 65F again tho! Been a very damp n cool week here. Needed the heavy coat again the other day.
That wedding trip to CA came at a good weather time!
