Writing about the fairy circle is hard, she thought
It was an old tradition, passed down and down -- don't you have one?

  -- a water tradition?

She would stand in the middle of her room
All painted in yellow, wearing a pretty dress, pigtales

  -- perhaps a special saying?

Taking the dust from the bottle -- purple to be precise
May, I excuse you sir -- it had to be purple

  -- special teddy bear -- am I reminding you?

She disappeared into her world of safety, her world of delight
Doing a fairy dust circle, sprinkling her childhood memory

      -- Is was but years later

She remembered why, why the fairy dust circle was there
It was for the monsters -- for that ugly smiling one

      -- Hidden in the cupboard, dark

Her fathers smile would bring her nightmares
Screams, of weird fright, illusions of the night

      -- Nightmare under the covers, dare to be spoken

The circling fan, that made noises, praying
The creaks, squeals and whistles -- as she listened to his footsteps

      -- Noises that go bump in the night, it was real

She would sit in her circle, protected
A childs' remedy -- a childs' delight, safe in her minds eye

      -- Today in her office

Sits a circle painting, slowly she smiles
And she stares at it, softly -- as they walk into the room
Writing as part of a writing prompt for "Fairy Ring"…
