30 Words: Mystical Land

A tiny world atop a wall;
Fuzzy moss turf and great fern trees,
Damp earth and cold stone.
One can only imagine a bug’s eye view
Of this mystical land.

    1. Oh yes! And this was quite unexpected. I might have missed it had my husband not parked in the parking spot he did. I appreciate you taking the time to drop in. :)

  8. This one speaks to me! Not just because there is no snow or ice in it... I like the words as well.

  10. that is totally beautiful and reminds me of the miniature villages we made as children using mom's salad bowl and some moss. a mirror became a lake!

  11. Jean- Aw, thanks! It reminds me of something similar. . . we made terrariums in 4th grade with moss and ferns like this. We inverted 3 liter coke bottles (the ones that had the black bottoms (do you remember those in the 80s?)) to make the terrariums. I remember running all over the school grounds looking for mossy patches to pull up. It was so fun. I like the idea of a mirror as a like too. I might just have to break down and make me some terrariums!! :)

  12. That is exactly the sort of world that I would find myself lost in when I was a kid! Shifting perspective like that really makes the world seem like an even grander place. This is a beautiful shot and makes me long for spring! Thank you for joining in the 30 Words Challenge, Miss Hope! Enjoy the day. Erin
