Gnome Magic

She is a gnome artisan in a hateful society with trolls in the comment sections and wicked witches in charge.
She concentrates to make each beard look fluffy,
colors their eyes joy blue,
and carves their smiles so we can smile back.
Maybe she could be creating a bronze sculpture of a robed man to be displayed under glass at a sterile museum, but she thinks differently.
She wants her pieces to end up in over grown yards to be rained and sun-drenched upon.
She thinks there is magic in everyday laughter.
When we grow up, we will make gnomes.
