Cinderella Syndrome 23


original image from
At the ball, the entire court was entranced by Cinderella, especially the Prince, who never left her side. Unrecognized by her sisters, Cinderella remembered to leave before midnight. Back home, Cinderella graciously thanked her Godmother. She then greeted the Stepsisters who enthusiastically talked of nothing but the beautiful girl at the ball.[Cinderella From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia; Plot taken from Perrault]

summer stars so bright
I'm your destiny, he said
and she believed him
--haikukelly

Late at the dance hall
someone whispers
Aschenputtel
--Ralf Bröker


they sway and glide
with a feathery lightness
bourn on the wind;
their budding love would stop time
if life were lived in dreams
--Adelaide...

cinders
left cooling at the hearth
this waltz
--magyar
