Wednesday Sory; The Fairy And The Rainbow






Once upon a time
There was a beautiful little fairy who lived alone in a beautiful garden.
She was in charge of the flowers there;
protecting them, nourishing them,
giving them their beautiful colours in summer,
putting them to sleep in winter.
She had a bed made of flower petals
she bathed in the morning dew,
she sang with the larks and chatted with the bees and the butterflies.
She embraced her garden with her love
 and the garden returned the favor by emracing her with equal love.


One day, the little fairy gazed at the sky
And saw a rainbow
hanging gracefully among the clouds in all its colourful splendor.
"Such a gorgeous sight!" The little fairy thought.
And kept gazing and gazing at its beauty.
Trully, it was a sight worthy of a fairy's attention,
for it satisfied all her longing for beauty and magic.
She started playing with her rainbow,
bathing herself in his glittering arches,
taking onto her transparent wings all his colours one by one.
She had so much fun,
she could hardly believe her luck.
But the rainbow did not last forever…
After the little fairy woke up from her afternoon nap, her rainbow was gone....



"Oh sky, oh trees, oh flowers and bees,
where did my rainbow go?" The little fairy moaned.
She abandoned everything and started a journey,
Searching for the rainbow all over the nearby meadows.
She travelled beyond the horizon
To  places she never knew or heard of before
Days waxed and waned
but the little fairy continued on with her longest journey
She hardly ate…
Or slept…
Or rested….
And soon the little fairy collapsed
Little of her strength remained for her to move…
To go on…
or to live...


Even the wind, who was watching the little fairy all along,
 became worried and came to her to help.
"Beautiful little fairy," He said.
"You who once knew happiness and joy. Why are you so sad?"
The little fairy whispered wearily.
"Because I miss the rainbow"
"The rain has moved and the rainbow now shines on another land.
"But he will return." said the wind
"I could not live without the rainbow! I would rather die."
"You would rather die because the rainbow is gone?"  asked the wind
"Y-Yes." The little fairy stammered.



"Is the rainbow a wicked beast that turned you to this?"asked the wind again.
"No, the rainbow was not a wicked monster,but an incredible sight to behold!"
"If that is what you believed in, little fairy,
then do not turn the rainbow into a wicked beast
that siphoned your life." pleaded the wind.

''Your life did not wither because the rainbow is missing.''
And your life did not wither because of his graceful love either''.
"What you're truly missing and withering from is the love for yourself!"
''Dear beautiful little fairy. As long as you live,
the rainbow shall return once and many times more.''
"You must stay alive, little fairy,
 for you must wait for the rainbow's return and welcome
him with the smile of your true happiness."


With that, the little fairy realized that her weakened state was her own fault.
She picked herself up and stood up.
She slowly flew back to her garden…
And rested…and ate...and took care of her flowers again...
For she did not want the rainbow she loved
to be nothing but the evil being that came to end her life.


She slept in her bed made of flower petals
she bathed in the morning dew,
she sang with the larks and chatted with the bees and the butterflies.

…And smiled, watching the sky changing color.

Some day, the rainbow will return
As long as the little fairy still breathes
She will live to see the beauty of the rainbow many times
and perhaps she will live to see it forever after.
