Written for: dVerse Poets Pub – Poetics: “Magic of Ordinary Things” (posted by Gina)
“We approach the end of another year. For a lot of us it is time for reflection and writing resolutions. As we get busy with year-end festivities let us not forget the important things in life, the ordinary things. It is not the large events that inform us of the beauty of our lives, instead it is the magic of ordinary things that will do that.
Today you are the creator, pick an ordinary everyday thing (or things!) and write it into something extra ordinary. May the end of year magic be your muse as you look at these ordinary things with new eyes and childlike wonder.”
See how morning sun slants
over my right shoulder
as I write, mug of strong
black coffee at my side.
That aroma and first sip
starts the magic of my day. This
is my most indulgent time.
I like to stretch it out
for as long as I can.
