Thursday photo prompt – Magic – #writephoto

If you want to participate, go to this link:

In childhood, I twirled around

under the setting Miami sun,

creating a wispy breeze of

roses, honeysuckle and jasmine. 


My feet cuddled by the short, flat

blades of Bermuda grass,

My eight year old mind shouted, 

“I can be anything!”


You became my world, my light,

our love blossoming with every tiny


through youth and middle age.


We near the end,  lights shining on a

frigid winter dusk. A stark beauty,

where love’s magic never dies, even

in the darkest of seasons.
