Once Upon a Time for HoT

Skittles at Heads or Tails offers this prompt: TAILS - "Once upon a time"
Make a post that starts with "Once upon a time." It can be a real story or idea that you want to start that way, a fairy tale of your own, etc.

Once upon a time,
summer was long.
Once upon a time,
love was ageless.
Once upon a time,
she grew older and
the world began to tilt.
Once upon a time
it again became all right.

The abstract image is an original watercolor by Sue.

That is awesome! You DO have a way with words. Very talented!!

My "Once Upon a Time" is more a 'fairy [and gnome] tale....come by and smile a little if you can find time.

That growing older bit worries me. I'm sure it's a state of mind.
