playing in woods and FabKids
The stillness of the woods called our names. Soft light trickling through trees gently danced above our heads. We become lost children, magical fairies, colorful butterflies, glowing fireflies.
We became luminescent, phosphorescent.
We breathlessly danced, swirling to our own beat as if magical drums fluttered in our heads. Silent at first, then louder and louder until our voices carried the sparrows away.
We became lost in our imagination.
A gift my children have taught me.
They have taught me to dance in open fields,
to sing into the trees, to shout in silent woods.
They have taught me to release myself.
They have taught me the secret of finding joy that hides in the corners of life.
