Magic

I step out onto the porch, no light…

Stars are bright, moon’s out
adding to the magic of the night

Wonder how many others are
are finding this night just right

Counting stars enhances the magic of the night

  1. A beautiful antidote to the claustrophobia that daily life has become, Pat. I am lucky to have a lovely garden outside. I think back to the years spent in a flat with no garden and wonder if I could manage that now in a lockdown. I love the lines:
    ‘Stars are bright, moon’s out
    adding to the magic of the night’.
    I hope there are more people stargazing, counting stars, connecting the dots and reaching out to each other in a gentle, safe way.

    • Having an outdoor space does help. I didn’t think staying in place would bother me as much as it is. I feel a constant need to shake off hints of the blues. But I’m sure I’m not the only one. I see on the TV that Times Square is actually free of people and vehicles! I’ve never seen that. Anyway, this too shall pass. Glad you enjoyed the read, thank you😊

    a splendid contemplation of the magic of the sky at night – a gentle prompt to appreciate what is there and a prod to go and look
