Prompt #176 - Creative

Recommended Posts

Your child has just told you they found something and want to keep it as a pet, but as they describe it to you, you smile thinking of all the stories you read as a child. Positive they are just imagining things you follow them out into the yard where you see it. What is it your child has found?

The Pilliwiggin

“Daddy…. Come quick, look what I found!”
“What is it?” I impatiently turned around
“It’s a little fey, with an injured wing;
and when I picked it up it began to sing!”
“Daddy…come quick, it isn’t far
It’s just outside in an old jam jar,”
“Don’t be silly, it just can’t be.
It’s probably a moth, or a strange little bee.”
I was dragged outside to look at this being
To discover it was a Pilliwiggin
There’s little known about these little fay
But they live in the flowers that bloom each day
So we mended his wing, and set him free
And then I hugged my child to me
“I’m sorry for snapping, in disbelief,
Now go and play, stop giving me grief.
