Cinderella leaf

Oh, I know I'm not supposed to like this.

This poor little forgotten leaf. But it looks like something the fairies left behind. I can just see them, the moonlight fading away to morning, scurrying to get home before the rays of the sun reveal their hiding places, and I can just see one lovely little fairy princess, dropping a bejeweled leaf in her haste, wondering & worrying where it could be, hoping she would find it the next evening.

I checked. It was gone the following day.
pumpkins, mice, glass slippers

  6. Of course it was gone. Didn't you hear the whispers of the fairy ball. Some poor Cinder-fairy needed a beautiful dress of gold with veins of bronze.
