I came across a creature most beautiful and peculiar,
By the river she sat sunning herself onshore.
Warm rays shed water off bare wings,
And I took a picture to share.
“You know I can’t let you show that,” she said, “to anyone.”
So the photo was tucked in the pages of my journal,
And I buried it in the earthen bank.
A misplaced jewel to be uncovered,
A faery hidden in the sand,
For you to find.
