I know of a King and Queen
who wear no crowns;
and in between halls
of stone walls
they did not meet
but in a crooked street.

I remember a Princess
who is not in a ball gown
but a ragged dress.
Still,
she met her prince
and been happy ever since.

Then there is this
quite aged Fairy Godmother
who grants wishes
of not her own daughter.
But on her hand
is not a magical wand.

These are tales I heard
that echoed
from since
the longest time ago.

I’m hoping that with this piece, you are reminded that fairy tales could happen in our lives. But oftentimes, they are so small we sometimes fail to notice them. Hope you were inspired in a way!

Now, What’s your Crooked Street?
