It holds stories to fill a lifetime,
Forgotten journeys taken in youth;
Of dragons and faeries,
Love and spaceships and wonder:
Things we leave in the past.
The past shapes the future.
Once held, a belief in faeries forms us.
Recollection brings understanding.
Faeries becomes muses –
Infinitesimal voices calling out inspirations.
Imagination is a great remembering:
Recollected experience mixed with faerie dust.
