I'm just going to jump in with my 2 cents worth. As this is a fantasy, why not throw in a little something supernatural? You said the young girl was visiting her grandparents, who were remodeling their home. I've heard that remodeling usually stirs up a few ghosts. In any case, I think it's great th...

Yes, it is very hard sometime. Your contribution today seems a little other worldly. I could almost see fairies dancing on their little fairy mounds.

Where the mighty oaks sway
and the restless wind sings
there in a shadowy spot
God gives His angels wings

of the fallen light
I looked beyond its sparkling emptiness
to see forever glistening

I think I need to join S.L.O.B.S., Mlou. I've been at my mothers all week helping with dad. No internet over there. I'll try to get another pim in tonight. :coffee1:

of time
hope fluttered against the
vast array
as I looked upon
love sublime.

What purpose to fear
a remembered desire
the known is not the end
