Fairy Slippers



(Calypso Orchids at Ouzel Falls)

We drumbeat bootsteps

on the dust carpeted path.

Our breathing synchronizes

to the cadence of our walking.


Calypso Falls pulses

in our ears, rushes

like our own circulation.

We capture it with cameras.


Troops of mountain fairies

lurk along the trail we hike,

dance with river water

spilling from their shoes.


Elusive resolute creatures

sing in beckoning whispers.

The Ouzel Dipper flies and dips

in the stream below them.


Mysterious wood sprites hover

throughout the forest.

Suddenly flowers settle

in shady fungal loam.


Ballerinas hieroglyph footprints

which appear and vanish like longing

until they lose their tiny purple

dancing shoes for us to find.
