Found Magic

Orange Mums

Sunset-glowing mums
Cast an earthy magic
Over a vanilla day.
My blue mug steams,
The bitter scent of green tea
Mingling with honey’s sweetness.
The calendar suggests newness.
January First: a new morning,
A new chance, a new start, a new dream.
Frozen grass crunches underfoot and
The sky is blue, clear and cold.
My breath steams like my mug:
Superheated for a magical brew,
Making all things seem new.
I resolve to find magic,
In any small detail, new or old,
Find magic and learn to take hold.

  1. Yesterday’s magic to well behaved grands (the elder especially so after going over the list of rules at Grama’s house).
    That and the first snow of the new year and seeing birds at the feeder. The Red cardinal a bright spot amid the dulled browns and greens.

    May you continue to find magic everyday! I really like Mums! I had large white spider mums in my bridal bouquet. 🙂
