|THE LORELEI SIGNAL
|One very cold day
I spotted a fairy crying in the forest.
Its wings were spread amongst the trees like glitter.
Its bawling was the sound of chimes.
Icicles hung from her eyelids
and a beard of ice formed under its nose.
Her exhaled breath formed small clouds.
Flapping her wings,
the sound of crinkled icicles,
she flew towards me,
A chilled wind smacked my face.
She changed direction and flew off,
her fluttering, the sound of a whispering wind.
