Sally looked around but there was no sign of it anywhere.

Where could she have dropped it? She wondered. Feeling her earlobes again in hope of discovering the earring, but her hand came back empty.

She thought back to her movements. She came into the garden and went near the flower beds. Then she took a look at the newly planted tulip bulbs and it was at this point that she touched her ear to feel the new diamond studs her daughter had given her as a birthday present. One was missing and from that point, she had been retracing her step and trying to find it.

It was almost dark and she reluctantly turned to go in when in the fading light, something glinted among the delicate primroses. Hopefully, she bent down and there it was, nestled among the flowers. Twinkling at her, as if giving her a wink.

Deep in the forest is a place that time forgot

It is surrounded by overgrowth and dense vegetation

In the middle is a clearing, a meeting place

Come join me there and we’ll talk heart to heart

No one will disturb us there in a place that time forgot

Sally blanched visibly as she looked down. So many stairs? “I don’t think I’ll be able to manage them with my vertigo”.

“It’s okay Aunt Sally I’ll lend you a hand. Just lean on me and don’t look down”.

Slowly both made their way down the numerous stairs. Sally was pleasantly surprised when she entered the hut. It was charming. But how could she stay here, when coming down was such an ordeal for her?

Patricia tried to explain the need for both of them to stay here for a while. It was in such a tucked-away spot, that uncle Zach wouldn’t be able to find them here.

It was agreed that they will take the cottage and Patricia will be the one going out for groceries etc.

Beware,

I stand guard here

No one can pass by me, unaware

Hey,

Don’t do that

I am a dragon not a pet

I don’t take kindly to your familiarity

Yes,

It is better now

You’ve learned to behave, how

To pay proper courtesy to a majestic being like myself

“Stop following me, I am NOT interested”

“Who’s following you? I am here enjoying the swim! You’re too self-absorbed”

“If that’s the case, enjoy someplace else, I don’t want you in my vicinity”

“I thought I would show you where a nice human couple is throwing bread crumbs for us, ducks”

“Oh!……

Well just don’t stay here, let’s go!”

Spring is in the air, temperatures are moderate and the spirits are lifting.

I too was affected by the spring fever and headed to the nearest garden center.

I did get a bit carried away but the blooms and plants were hard to resist.

After splurging a sizable amount on planters, soil, bulbs, and indoor plants, I stopped by the flowers and got tulips and lilies, pansies, and daisies.

Though spring is a very short season in my city, we will enjoy these beauties till it lasts.

The moss-covered chair rested on the moss-covered ground

A green-colored goblin had claimed it for his own

The forest creatures grew envious of this luxury item

And planned to deprive the goblin of this comfort

Stealthily they crawled there and hauled it away

When the goblin was away foraging for fodder in the forest

They dumped the moss-covered sofa by the roadside

I found this chair and was tempted to own it

But hidden in its crevices were a few gremlins

So I took a picture and left it on the mossy forest floor

The path forward is lost to the eye

I presume that it will lead me to a place of beauty

Green and refreshing vista, as far as I can see

The beginnings promise a beautiful ending

But I have to take it on a presumption because it is hidden from me

Similarly, many things in life have to be taken on trust

For when we can see the start of the journey, its termination is not visible

Yet we do venture forward with a belief in our abilities

And often achieve success in ventures requiring a leap of faith

The day was getting on but I stood on the bridge and waited

Even the birds had flown home but I stood here and waited

I was alone and lonely, but I stood by myself and waited

I waited till there was no point in waiting anymore

It because apparent that you weren’t going to keep your promise

Yet I gave you the full benefit of the doubt and waited till I could
