Snip snip snip went the little scissors cutting into the silk cloth. Perhaps the magic was deeper in the delicate places than the strong tight wove parts.
The half hearted people were not as brave as the fairy stories,; the killers not as powerful as the spiders in their gorgeous webs.
There is a place which is retreat. where they built the houses. The ghost paths ramble and twist and the holy and unholy co-exist.
Gaia is also a snake lady.Her hands and skirts full of surprises.
Blue and yellow do not always make green; it depends on which blue and yellow you choose.
