An unfeasible image:
a tree rooted in a crescent moon,
the branches hold tiny stars
a cosmos within itself.
Modern fantasy stories of a race existed long before Mankind walked the earth.
European Lore refers to the race as one
lived with one foot in the realm of Fairy
one foot in the “mundane” world.
The Old Religion based on the forces of nature
describes these stories with images of sacred trees
the very branches themselves
reached into the stars.
The Old stories remind us
of the Truth hidden in fiction;
children’s stories that hold the lessons of life
are only truly realized when we reach adulthood.
The impressions of virtue
to the pure of heart
and to those new to life captured
in tales of elves and fairies
struggling to bring peace to a troubled world.
The Fairy Tale may at times be more true to the heart
than the most mundane experience
because it hearkens to a time when we could see with our hearts
without the jaded perspective of a crushed hope.
Merlin’s Elvin Moon Amulet:
A Moon Talisman,
from it a tree with seven stars in the branches
and roots in the cradle of a crescent.
