Sparkles of light across water
Spin faerie dreams.
Writhing plumes of sandalwood smoke in my room
Calls the wild hunt.
A small, soft hand slipped awkwardly into mine
Rings soft bells.
A song sung a cappella
Praises everyday miracles.
Tasting rain on a sunny day
Takes me back to childhood.
Grass so green, it's blue
Paints the day.
Baby powder dusts the counter,
Granting the charm youth.
My mother's hugs,
The laughter of a friend
Shared with another.
Sweet dark chocolate,
Melted into coffee on a cold day.
The moon, a great round orb, holes the
While fireflies twinkle, stars on earth.
A newly dried blanket, wrapped around me
Chases away winter's chill.
Warm ocean water, licks my toes
As I scrub the salt-wind from my eyes.
A purring cat, snuggles my lap,
Another nips my heel.
A lover's kiss
Wakes me up.
Ordinary components in life's spell.
