door to fairyland
fallen, despite flagged warning
lesson learnt the hard way
My grandsons, Big Bro (6) and Little Bro (3) were playing with the Fairy Door that was tucked under the oak tree, they wanted to take it out of its cubby hole. I told them that if it came out it might get broken.
Later they were playing football and the inevitable happened. I searched online for another fairy door and came across these wooden cut outs
made by Hazel Woodcraft
They are not as big as the ceramic one but this one will do nicely until I find a bigger one.
I’m thinking of putting a few around the house, atop skirting boards and at the bottom of cupboard doors … and maybe adorning a birthday card or two
At least these will survive the football.
Joining in with our 52 Week Photo Challenge: prompt word DOOR
I ‘pushed’ the photo at the top of the post to extremes and changed it to monochrome as I liked the shapes created. It would make a great design for a piece of abstract art in collage or paint.

It strikes me that this haiku could be a metaphor for many situations. It reminds me of the dire warnings my Dad gave me when I got engaged aged 19 – my Dad turned out to be right!
