Magic – quadrille for dVerse

We’re fresh out of magic –
used it heedlessly,
thinking there’d be more –
frittered it away
on ball gowns, slippers,
golden apples –
now we need it –
just a pinch
would be enough,
but look –
the jar is empty
and the world is dark.

Linda is hosting at dVerse tonight, and the quadrille word is “magic”.

  1. Yes, we seem to have hit rock bottom with little hope of a way up. But there is always a little magic, Sarah, tucked away for times like this. I’ve found some in poems I’ve read and good deeds I’ve heard about. Nil deperandum!

  2. Yes, we used it all so carelessly, with not enough gratitude………this virus may result in the shift in consciousness we need. But I am frustrated by the hordes of people not complying, while front line workers are losing their lives in the battle. Sigh.
