Such a sweet poem and a lovely illustration to compliment your poem. They are so shy around humans, have their own world and if we are lucky, grace us with their shining presence. Good luck in the contest. K xx

    Thank you, Aussie, for your review, comments, and the high honor of a six-star rating.
    I was so fortunate to come across that illustration. I am grateful, also to the artist.
    Thank you again, and may you have a creative day.

Nicely done! You crushed the prompt superbly. I also liked the overall presentation and the highlighting of the words with the darker "peach" color.

Best of luck in the contest!
Brandon

    Oh, Brandon, thank you so much for the highest rating and the compliments. However, verbal feedback like yours ( about the presentation, colors, etc.) is helpful and always welcome.
    Thank you again.

I enjoyed reading this! Well written and followed the criteria for the contest. That last line gives a bit of an edge to the poem, making it all the better. Well done thanks for sharing!:)

Excellent poem. Very well written, and it flows smoothly throughout your poem. I loved reading it. The artwork is beautiful, and goes perfectly with your poem. I love the topic that you wrote about, as I love reading and or writing about fairies. Always been fascinated about the idea of fairies. The rhyming in your poem, you did a great job with that. Thank you for sharing.

a great poem about fairies and other creatures that are all around us but we can not see perhaps they exist in another parallel dimension and only interact with us on rare occasions

Yes, we must remember that there are eyes everywhere, fairies, and otherwise, watching everything we do. LOL. Now I'm waiting for those 1,200 to 1,500 word stories. :-) Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, Ric, for reviewing and for all those stars.
    May the fairies light your path today.
    That aside, you are a heavy taskmaster. With some urging from you, I have done a few flash fiction pieces, and now the ante has been upped to 1,200 to 1,500 words. Whew! Okay, I'll work towards it, but there will still be a bunch of poems that will come along the way. Thanks for being my mentor.

    LOL. Don't let me be too pushy. I just know how hard it was for me to finally break into short story prose longer flash. And I never would have done it without the person who catapulted into oncoming traffic. :-)

    No problem, I need a little push in that direction. So, after tackling an upcoming SIX-WORD poem, I'll look at some longer offerings. LOL.

This is an excellent description of fairies and all of their special powers. Done in the ABC style with rhyming every other line at the end it is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. This speaks for all of us who believe in fairies. I especially like the last line that says fairies watch us when we are not looking. The is wonderful and a sure win for the contest.

Very nice. It has a good alternative rhyme scheme, and the ABC form is well done. I think the theme and magical feel of it will go over well with the FanStory readers. We can all do with a little fairy magic and wonder in the world.

I see you have solved life's mystery. Have you received the pot of gold, or are you chasing rainbows in this forum? I know, I am, and one day, I may break into the inner sanctum of writers who have many voting friends.
If you need help, like how to color your selected font with a bandaid, ask.

    I am most definitely chasing rainbows, but I have not one thing against pots of gold.
    Thanks, Tom, for your review and all the stars. If I need help, I will ask you.
