Through Bare Branches

“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy.” – Isaac Newton

 When despair seems to halt spring,
remember rainbows and wings
(small wild magics) are easiest seen
through bare branches.


in isolation,
an explosion of oaklings
keeping it real

Social
distancing continues
to ruin parties,
but I am growing
eyelashes.

    I love this line beautiful
    That is actually quite a beautiful mouth cap. Here only some people wear them in the supermarket. Being in total lock down we hardly meet any people anyway

    1. P.S. I never heard the term "mouth cap" before. So very descriptive. I like it.

  3. I’m pleased to see that you’re still getting out and about, Magaly, to observe the ‘small wild magics…through bare branches’. And eyelashes!

  5. I appreciate how skillfully you balance truths, both harsh and beautiful in these pieces. Those little magics are waiting to be noticed, to be our renewing strength and guiding star through all this. It's funny how hope can root and grow in something as small as an eyelash. But thank goodness that it does.

    1. Hope doesn't eat much. And once it's born... Hope just grows.

    1. I've been expecting the Doctor to show up any day. If he does, I hope he brings Rose. I might scream if I have to deal with Amy Pond.
