passing as I play
a swaying dandelion
on an autumn breeze
let’s take flight of fancy to where the fairies live …
I head a pigeon’s “coo coo” this morning. She was resting on the chimney. Her voice flew down the chimney, out of the fireplace, and up the stairs.
I can hear you say, “Grandma Brenda voices don’t have wings. They cannot fly.”
Yes, voices don’t have wings. But somehow they do travel from one place to another.
Let us imagine voices having tiny tiny butterfly wings.
Wings like the Western Blue Beauty or Monarch Butterfly. Other voices could be flying through the sky with miniature dragonfly wings.
Or maybe we could draw the “chirp chirp chirp” of the Robin’s song with majestic wings of gold that would glitter in the Spring’s morning sun.
I would like to see a voice’s wings knitted from spider silk. A silverly white that would carry the momentous sound of a distance crane in flight.
Oh our imagination opens us up to wonderful possibilities.
I love you.
Thank you John (Journeys with JohnBo) for this invitation to play, to wander where fairies live, and yes imagine voices having wings.

Thank you for dropping by and sharing a few words.
Well Brenda, I don’t know if you really are Grandma Brenda but if not you should be. No little girl could possibly not love an adore you after seeing this – truly a flight of fancy. Well worthy of publishing, sheer (literally and figuratively) perfection.
Thank you Tina for your validating words. It might be fun to image words transforming into images that dance with the rhythm of thoughts…hum..
I can’t love this enough. The tenderness in the conversation and the photos to encourage the thoughts. Wow.
Thank you for your encouraging words.
🙂 🙂 🙂
Oh, what brilliant flights of fancy!
Thank you Sue
You are most welcome!
This was lovely!
Thank you for “lovely”
As I review this week’s responses to my challenge, I am enjoying the unique takes on the theme. Yours is one of my favorites! So also said the butterfly to the dragonfly. 🙂
Your comment is greatly appreciated.
Beautifully done. Thank you for sharing the sentiment of a grandmother.
Thank you Amy…she is a very special person.
Wonderful flight of fancy. Well done.
I think this should be a book!
I’m thinking about asking her parents if they would be okay if I collected some of the letters to put into a book.
a wonderful heirloom gift!
What a fabulous post, Brenda. I love your images and thoughts. Yes, voices do have wings. Yours reached me loud and clear!
Thank you Patti for your wings of validation
