Nature’s Fairy House


Whimsical fairy houses
are in vogue these days.
Made by humans with
wisps of gauze, shiny baubles,
bark, stones and string.
They beckon the etherial creatures
to light on their portals
and inhabit their spaces.
But nature has created 
a shelter all her own.
A mushroom house where 
fairies can find protection
from the rain and mid-day sun.
A playful house with room
to zip between its stately columns,
and a cushion on which
to rest when day is done.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
