A Bit of Fluff

I was walking across the lawn — think huge, this is a large condo complex — and I came across this itty-bitty piece of peacock fluff.  Mostly it is white and frizzy, but on the tips of the very end is a bit of color — emerald treasure.  Peacock magic.

Did you know that Fairies weave their wedding clothes from the tips of peacock feathers?  In fact, every bride ever blessed by a fairy has had a dress of peacock down.  That is why in all fairy tale weddings, the couple always lives happily ever after, no matter what.
