The Crystal Guardians – Chapter 4

There we all stood in an almost dark cavern

“This is kinda spooky and dark,” Skullerina said

“Yes, it maybe now but wait and see,” said Petunia.

With that in floated a very large very bright multi colored butterfly,

Its massive wings shimmered and rippled as it floated above our heads to the front area.

The kids knew this was no ordinary butterfly this had to be the queen.

Nothing in our little world could compare to the beauty that lay just in one wing.

“Oh WOW,” stated Natalie, as Kellen and Cole let out a drawn out whistle.

She floated gracefully to the front of this dark cavern and landed upon a golden flower chair which could only be the throne of the Queen.

It sparkled when she fluttered and rippled her wings.  Oh yes, this was for sure the queen.

I little Skullerina let out a gasp that came out like a beller and she winked at me…

Then in a most airy and light voice she stated “Let my light flow,”  And it did, everywhere we looked there were little lights shimmering to the tall ceiling above us, it looked like thousands of little stars flying up all at the same time. And there we all stood bathed in shimmering rainbows that bounced off of the crystals that were embedded in the ceiling overhead.

Then we all let out a gasp and beller, for the room was not a dark cavern as we thought but we stood in a massive white marble grand ballroom.

From the walls to the floors and ceiling everything was white, and not just any white but a brilliant white that reflected each and every rainbow and when my little eyes looked harder I saw a little firefly by each crystal, that is what she meant when she said let her light flow, it was truly more than my little brain could take in.

“WELCOME Home Leo, it has been a long time old friend, welcome to one of your new homes dearest crystal guardians, and welcome visitors Skullerina and Chester T. Love the III.”

Her wings fluttered and rippled when she talked it was so beautiful.  Leo spoke up “May I present her royal majesty, Brooke, the one and only RAINBOW RIPPLE BUTTERFLY FAIRY.”


The Crystal Guardians – chapter 3

So now I find myself and Chester flying through millions of stars, planets and other spaceships? “That was a spaceship did you see that Chester?  How is it  that I can breath in space, where are we going, how long is it going to take us?” Skullerina states.  With that Leo (who was ahead of us) slows down long enough to let us know, “We are on our way to BarDuck my home planet.  There we will meet the Queen and learn of the cousin’s new mission.” Leo states

With that being said we all land with a thump. “Wow that hurt, how come we couldn’t land on marshmallow, they are soft and yummy at the same time! Yum marshmallow!” says Skullerina

“Get off!”  Skullerina looks around

“Who said that?”  asks Skullerina.

“I said get off!”

“I am sorry I did not see you” Skullerina said.

There under Skullerina’s tummy is a cute little elephant.

Leo states “Hello Petunia! nice to see you!”

“Guardians and friends let me introduce you to

Petunia the Petite Periwinkle Pachyderm,

Petunia the Petite Periwinkle Pachyderm

she is duchess to Queen.”

“Welcome home Leo, and so nice to meet you all, but we are late the Queen is waiting.”   Petunia waved her trunk and a mirror appeared and she walked through it, as did we all.  Now we find ourselves in the castle of the Queen.

The Crystal Guardians – chapter 2

So now the cousins are just laying there on the ground staring up at us.

Frozen like statues – but Leo to the rescue walks across the cousins on the tummies and

starts saying “Snow Special Snow I call upon you to wake up these guardians”

And there right before my eyes (my little cow eyes) it begins to snow inside the barn right on the cousins’ faces and only there.

Nothing like this has ever happened its very strange to see snow that lands only on faces and inside the barn?

Leo is quite the wizard.  Yet before long the cousins are starting to blink and then,

Cole was the first to ask “Am I dreaming or is this really happening?”

And with that the Leo scurried up on his chest looked him straight in the eye

“Oh this is very real!”  he stated and then fanned his beard.

“Now we must get going we are so very late” Leo states

“Late for what,” the cousins ask in unison.

“Late for your introduction to the Queen of Barduck of course” states Leo

“Well Hugu, take care of things here I will be back with them very shortly,”

With that Leo flicks his magic tail and a beautiful silk rug appears with a scene from a place

not of earth for in the sky hung two moons of pink and the hills all shimmer in tones of purple

with little silver flowers all over.”  “Its beautiful” states Natalie

Kellen says “That can’t be real, or is it?” as he leans down to touch it his whole hand disappears

and he pulls back his hand and states to Leo “What? How did that happen?”

Leo looks at him very closely and says, “I see I have some work with you,

come on we must not keep the Queen waiting.” And with that Leo walks right onto the rug and disappears,

the cousins look at each other and then slowly one by one step onto the rug and poof they disappear too.

I know of magic and potions and all sorts of strange and wonderful things but even this has me baffled

then out pops Leo’s head he looks at me and Chester and states “Are you coming or not?”

I look to Hugu and he says “GO have some fun.”  Chester climbs up and in between my ears

and I too (being a brave little cow) step onto the rug and poof we are gone…

tune in again to find out where Skullerina and the cousins go, until then have a GREAT and HAPPY DAY!!!


Polka Dot Ranch – Thursday – 39 days after Christmas

So when we last left Hugu he was listening to Violet singing to the flowers,  that was late this fall before the snow flew

Today we find him after having enjoyed Christmas dinner and New Years famous ball drop with family and friends.

Ready to get back to everyday jobs on the ranch,

why just last week

he had to fix the leak

so he could fill the stock tank

where the animals came and drank

the night before Christmas was quiet in the barn

not a creature was stirring not even a mouse

well in this barn the mouse does stir quite often

what do you mean what mouse

have I not told you of the mouse

the great mouse that came to stay

and even get the cats to lay

down when he speaks

with his little squeak, squeak, squeak

he is quite smashing

and handsome and dashing

and loves to hoard things

all kinds of trinkets and strings

tucking them in his hidey hole

one time I even saw a miniature scroll.

Who is this mouse that I speak of

why its none other than Chester T Love

the third, he flew in on a dove.

There he was standing so tall

right next to Skullerina’s stall.

I knew right away that he was smart

as he was eating a little tart.

He saw me coming and never ran away

he just stood there plain as day

with his cute little vest

across his furry chest

and a fadora with a feather

covered his head in all weather.

As you can plainly see

he is as cute as a bee’s knee.

So now I must be on my way

we will chat another day.

Little gray mouse

Polka Dot Ranch…day 3

I have other friends

so my heart will mend

I miss the ranch were I was born

but here they raise some corn

So now my life is here

with many new friends near

my friends are kittens, horses and a turkey

he walks kinda quirky

his head bobs up and down

and he struts and pecks the ground

he makes me laugh

and me just a little calf

then there is the beagle

she sometimes thinks she is an eagle

IMG_1996 - Copy

she follows the bunnies in the yard

and in the house i heard there was a lizard


i feel warm and cozy

and my new life is quite rosy

for now i am off to bed

to rest this little head.

more tales to tell another time

so for now i will end this rhyme.
