The Mag-

You know the magic is still alive
through every little giggle. - Me

an Easter Basket
Taught Me
about Life

In the mere twinkling of an eye
on this Easter day
as millions of people across our planet 
descend these same steps, 

 So many elusive gifts
of compassion and abandoning woes
we move by the improbable nature
of invisible beliefs-
and the nature of their existence,
within us.

Adjusting our sails,
shelling worries and etching memoirs 
dripping in moments of fondness
innocently hilarious
and utterly sugary
sentiments submerged
by charming eyes 
and pointed rescues
all across our planet.
Capturing both lyrical and unmelodious
setting the stages of our lives.

"I can believe things that are true 
and things that aren't true
and I can believe things where
nobody else knows if they're true
or not."
Neil Gaiman
