Little man in green comes to visit with me.
PROMPT: In honor *Shamrock* St. Patrick's Day *Shamrock* write a short story, 1000 words or less, about your adventure with a leprechaun.

While I was enjoying my breakfast this Sunday morning before going to church, a little man dressed in green popped up at my door. He was polite, hungry, and lost. I was not at all prepared for guests, so offered to him a bagel and explained I was going to church so he would have to leave.

"I can not leave," he said with an assuring smile and sparkle in his eyes.

I assured him that he would have to go to church with me, or find another place to stay. He decided to go to church with me, so I called my ride and asked them if it was possible for this green dressed little man to ride to church with us.

Suddenly he disappeared. How did he do this when I was looking at him, or did I blink? It seemed to be only a second and he appeared again dressed in a green suite which happened to be very bright and glowing green with some gold to accent the edges of his suit coat.

After church I offered a ride to him and he thanked me, then disappeared again.

As I opened me door and tried to get inside there was a huge chest blocking my way, so I had to ask my driver to help me move so we could enter the house. I couldn't imagine how someone got this in my house when it was securely locked, and who could possibly have placed this road block in the way?

After getting settled I began to investigate the huge chest and noticed it was the same green and gold colors for his suit, that the little man wore when we went to church. My spirit was aroused and my heart began to beat faster. What could this mean?

I opened the chest and there was many colors which began to unwind and move along the walls of the house. A moment or two later, I had a huge rainbow along all of the wall space. My treasure chest was full of beautiful colors which filled the house and reminded me of the awesome beauty of heaven my home where I belong. You never know when an angel from heaven will visit with you. Some people believe in leprechauns. I believe in angels who sometimes dress up as leprechauns.

Safe travels and many blessings. Happy *Shamrock* St. Patrick's Day *Shamrock*

dogpack:invest in yourself writers: You asked for word art about family and friends so even though this isn't actually about a friend, I thought for this purpose I would be able to call this individual my friend. Thank you for sharing about the celtic mythology and halloween. Safe travels and many blessings.

I opened the chest and there were many brilliant colors which began to unwind and attach themselves along the walls of the house gradually, illuminating everything. A moment or two later, I had a huge rainbow along all of the wall space. My treasure chest was full of beautiful glowing colors which filled the house giving me a sense of uplifting sprit and reminded me of the awesome beauty of heaven my home where I belong.
