MC's Whispers

Whispering Silences

Light up, light up


©Sandra Crook

In daytime, it seemed like a simple street lamp with its metallic surroundings and a white exterior. It was nothing special. At least that was what the majority of passers-by thought.

But one little girl believed differently. She saw in that lamppost a fairy tale. The first time she saw it, she said it reminded her of her father’s bedtime stories.

When night came, the lamp turned on; but in different colours. And when the first snowflake fell, the lamp turned itself into a lit-up snowball encasing Santa’s house.

Magic was there. You just had to want to see it.

  3. I still love to imagine such things—just don’t always share them, as I’ve learned people tend to look at me funny 🙂

  4. You’ve written an elegantly simple tale with a good moral. We could all do with seeing a little more magic in life.


  5. Oh to be a child again! Simply delightful.

  7. This reminds me of when I was a little girl. There was a large streetlight in front of my house. Not that I thought it was magical (lol) but the story made me smile
