Reawaken

She looks as though she might have been laying there for an eternity. Curled up on her side, her face turned towards the earth, she appears to be no more than a child.

The girl has dreamed herself to faery form. A dress of fine iridescence, one color fading, bleeding in to another. A pair of large wings sprout from her shoulders, finer than the material of the dress. Purples turn to blues, greens turn to yellows, like a butterfly bathed in a full spectrum of hues.

She moves a hand, a finger. Her eyelids flutter. Does she feel the spider-silk threads that run from her face to the mossy ground? Or perhaps the dewdrops as they glisten on her hair?

Perhaps she has been away with the fae, as she slept and dreamed and slept some more. But now it is time for her to reawaken. Her wings get fainter, her dress becomes a t shirt and jeans. With a stretch, a yawn, she wipes away the remains of the cobwebs, shakes off the dew. Stretching, she gazes around. Are there remnants in her mind of another realm she’s left behind?

Faery gone, she stands, a girl once more.
