After dark months
of hard-as-iron winter,
cold and long,
the first month of spring
has been bereft of birdsong.
Still, the vernal magic wand
is quietly greening,
scattered with white stars
of snowdrops, yellow daffodils
and golden coronas of celandine,
conjuring constellations of sunshine.

Linda is our host this Monday and she is brightening up our depressive world situation with her magic wand, starting with a quote from Nora Roberts about the existence of magic. She has also shared a wonderful poem by Dean Young, entitled ‘Belief in Magic’.
I love this challenge, to use the word ‘magic’ in any form, including making up our own words as long as they contain magic!
