A Fairy Tale Unleashed

Slice of Life Tuesday

Careless curls 
frame her face. 
She dances through life 
through she may lack traditional grace.

Her blue eyes devour the world. 
Every color, shadow, and angle. 
Only missing her wings, 
this girl is no doubt an angel. 

On tiptoes walking.
Part artist and part tornado.
No dust will ever settle
on the soul that never slows. 

Laughter that could entrance a fairy.
A heart that could love a beast. 
She is courageous and kind. 
A fairy tale unleashed.

(Written 8.4.15)
