A Dorsimbra inspired by a Pond Poetry image.
Autumnal spirits soar when pixies dance
upon the banks of rippling mountain streams
in celebration of the one last chance
before the winter ice will freeze their dreams.
The rhythm of the river
enthralls them, until
among the woodland nymphs.
Like ballerinas doing pirouettes
in ancient mystic ceremonies there,
they demonstrate their ecstasy, because
autumnal spirits soar when pixies dance.
