Always cherished.
“Once upon a times”
Whose time was never right.
No fairy godmother came
To wave a wand or cast a spell.
No pumpkin coach for Cinderella…
Life happens, writing its own fairytale.
Reality, in multivalent guise,
Creating stories, each one unique.
The warmth of a human heart,
The tender touch of love,
Holds its own magic.
Happy endings?
Not a dream,
A gift…

For Colleen’s poetry challenge

  1. You totally amaze me with all your multiple talents. I cannot even imagine writing a poem like this, let alone trying to remember the name of its type. Anyway, to me, the three of you are geniuses!!! You must have been born writing!
