Feathered Bed

Fairy tales with happy-ever-after endings
True love blossoms in each one
Fidelity is never questioned
All is true in this dream world, not so in ours
Fables reflect gems of truth or
Figments of our imaginations?

Feathered bed or bed of tacks?
Child-like optimism leads me to feathered bed!

    Doesn’t matter what lies ahead for me, I will always believe in love…it’s what I know, what I write about & who I am.
    I do like how you incorporated all the themes in one.
    Nice imagery too.

    You and I are on the same page today, Becca! Wonderfully written and image fits well.


  10. Morning says:

    brilliant take on the theme,

    a job well done.


  11. Lovely take on fidelity, Becca. Lives lived in optimism may be wrong sometimes, but they are not constantly looking for proofs of their pessimism!


  12. thingy says:

    Yep, I love the child’s take. I also like how you got all the subjects in. Terrific. : )


  13. You captured that childhood beauty. Excellent.


  14. Your inner child is much too young for a feather bed . . .unless of course she sleeps alone.


  15. Well done Becca. A complete different form as my haiku about feather(s)
