Fairy Wishes

Posted on
Image: Vika Muse @get.muse

I wish for you a garden

a garden full of grace

where the earth smells sweet

hints of hollyhock and camomile

I wish for you a pair of wings

that flutter soft like baby’s heart

but fly feral through the storm

I wish for you a sun-baked sky

where rain drizzles daydreams

and clouds kiss your eyes

I wish for you an emerald stream

where fellow fairies dip their toes

with tiny tea cups

sipping slow on apricot tea

I wish for you a haven

feather landing, velveteen

rosy cheeks, pillow dreams

where it seems there

is no darkness

only light

just hold on tight

For this week’s Poetics at dVerse Poets Pub

It is my pleasure to feature “Vika Muse”, a Ukrainian digital artist, who despite the despair and chaos in her country continues to shine through her artistry. She has kindly shared her work with us as inspiration. We are hoping to share a little light between her beautiful work and our poetry. We welcome you to join in.

You can find “Vika Muse” on Instagram @get.muse

This poem is dedicated to Vika Muse.

  1. This reads like a wonderful lullaby… there is nothing sweeter than to wish someone loved the best of sleep.

  2. So beautifully writ. I agree with Bjorn….how I would love to hear this sung. Perfect for children…or for anyone needed to believe. You have indeed brought light through your writing…may all these wishes come true.

  3. What lovely, lovely wishes, Mish! Sigh. I agree–it is like a lullaby.

  4. Such a beautiful, dreamy verse, that seems to fit Vika Muse’s images — where rain drizzles daydreams…so lovely…

    I can hear Billy Joel singing this to his grandchildren. It is so lovely, light and hopeful; good on you.

  6. “I wish for you a pair of wings
    that flutter soft like baby’s heart
    but fly feral through the storm”
