The Faery Ring

Fairy glen pic edited

Some time ago, I went on an amazing trip to Scotland. I visited the Fairy Glen in Isle of Skye, and the picture above is evidence of that. No doubt, I am no photographer, nor did I go at dawn or dusk to capture a mystical sight, heavy with mist and filtered with rays of sunlight.

This photo was taken right smack in the middle of summer, the sun shining full and hot, with midges buzzing in my ears.

Nonetheless, a wee poem sprung idly into my mind, and I’ve a thought to share it with you. So here it is. Enjoy!

The Faery Ring

O faery ring – bright reds and blues.
Of merry chirpings and trickling pools,
of smoothened stones and leaf-dropped dew.

Be still; be silent; be sober.
Let not fickle beauty lure,
lest in the mists you disappear.

Well, what do you think? 🙂

I am truly grateful to have seen such sights. I think that such beauty and detail in this world points us to the undeniable fact that there is indeed a Creator — one who created us and the world. As a Christian, I take delight in this because it means that God has created a world in which every single being has its purpose and order, and nothing can exist outside of Him. And I am one such being.

And you are, as well.

  1. Hi Mildred, indeed God created the world. The Bible says:
    “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ Acts of the Apostles 17:24-28
    So relevant – poets say so too!
