Third PersonGood morning Mama. Though I said it loudly, there was no response from the elderly woman before me. Good morning, I said again, raising my voice as I gently touched her arm. The woman turned her head ever so slightly to look at me, smiling kindly.
Good morning dear. Her voice was as frail as her withering body, quivering with each word spoken. She had a careworn face that had more wrinkled than unwrinkled areas and had snow-white hair that fell in a sort of cloud around her face. She was hunched in a chair on a balcony, looking out over a forest. There was an empty chair beside her, which I took without invitation.

A fairy is beside me,
her touch warm on my skin,
a dragon is beneath me,
and a giant nearby him.

while a little girl in red
is skipping off to grandma
who is waiting sick in bed.

and a girls left for a ball,
a fairy godmother,
is waving last of all.
I smile in my sleep
as the things of pleasant dreams
come circling around me
and embrace my childhood themes.
