Hello, Grabbing you by the spine.
I open your hard case
Reading your words, sentences, paragraphs and pages.
Processing each to create a image in my head.
laughing, crying, feeling sad, understanding as I flip through your fibrous material.
Being an outside observer to the character(s) you harbor.
When their journey comes to end, so does your.
As close your hard shell and return you where we first met.
It’s the end of the year. Nature is already entering its revolution phase: hibernation in the Northern Hemisphere, burning heat in the Southern. It’s the magic of life. Like Mother Nature, you too can give your life a new beginning.
What magic have you accomplished in the past year? Be it small or grand, it’s worth celebrating in a poem!
You can write about something you did that made you feel young again, or maybe about that difficult undertaking you finally completed. (I, for example, mastered French lemon meringue pie; as we say here, “it wasn’t cake.”) You might also take inspiration from a dream that came true, or from a difficult situation resolved in a fairytale-like ending. Of course, everyday magic (or even failed magic) works too!
