this morning




overdue library books
a sky the colour of cold
dreaming of trolls with mountains in their bellies
tea, and strawberry jam on toast
church roses
gathering donations, thank you so much
small poems
finding time and letting go of time

when you rest in your true priorities, there you find peace

a new emptiness on the horizon
seagull song
believing that I don't need to know
the sway of a pale curtain

the sea is breathing on the streets

thank you to everyone who has subscribed to Suburban Magic; there is no time limit on donating, even weeks down the track you will simply be provided with the back issues ... every morning I wonder why I am writing about small, hidden magic at such a difficult time, and then I read the latest news and remember how important are the small, the hidden, and the magic, especially now.

  3. The small magics of every day life are wondrous things--the simplicity is needed in this modern world, with or without the present darkness that is looming. <3 Lovely words Sarah, as always.
