PHOTO PROMPT – Copyright – Kelly Sands
They like to come out when it rains. That’s when they run across the rooftops and dance upon the eaves. Because they are magic, they know how to hide themselves from human eyes, but the pixies love the sound of their tiny dancing feet.
If you look closely sometimes you can see them. That flash of light when there is no lightning, that whisper of mist which is not mist. Yeah, that’s probably a pixie. I’m just saying. Look out next time you clear out the gutters after a storm. The last thing you’d want to do is hurt one by accident.

For sure a pixie. I will be very careful next time. Lovely prose.
Thx Silvia! Yeah you never know!
This is so imaginative — I love it! 🙂
I love the idea of little pixies running around in the rain! I wonder what they’ll do to you if accidentally hurt one, though…
Now every time I think I see something out of the corner of my eye, I’ll wonder if I’ve seen one of the little fellows 🙂
Geez, I thought it was their job to clean the gutters? Their business card read Pixie’s Gutter and Drain Service. Now, I hear they’re dancing instead of working? How disgraceful. I’m calling the Better Business Bureau.
I love this, such a tender story.
Such a lovely take on the prompt. Magical and hopeful in contrast to the dark gloomy photo. Well done!
Great voice, lovely imagination!
Very charming, Anne. Love it!
Pixies! I’d forgotten about those little creatures. I will watch out when cleaning the gutters. Good story.
Anne, Good, well-written story. You never know when those little guys will show up. I wouldn’t want any trouble with pixies. My motto is live and let live. Well done. 🙂 —Susan
I’ll be on the lookout next time I clean out the gutters. 😉 A very entertaining and imaginative piece.
Nice work and beautiful imagery 🙂
