a circle of elves.
they inhabit trees and gaze at flowers.
one may tower over a hunched human, emanating -- like an angel -- a ring of light.
splash upon earth tones, the green leaf.
a feather pierces time and brings tiny ripples ashore.
finding oneself called up a mysterious passage in the midnight sky.
to be ferried.
to truss with cotton or iron.
dropped in the shadows, glinting shard.
