Spellbound

on August 15, 2015

Beginning with morning the magic appears
I open my eyes, greet another new day
Outside my window I hear the birds singing
Serenading creation and all it provides.

Checking to be sure my knees are still working
I head to the kitchen for my early pleasure
Smelling and tasting strong coffee restores me
I offer thanksgiving for these simple treasures.

I light a candle whose sweet scent reminds me
I’m only a guest at a banquet of senses
Stroking the wood of my grandmother’s chair I remember
Love is my hostess when I RSVP.

  1. You’ve put me in the mood for a cup of coffee – and it’s night time where I am… but I can smell it now. Nice one.

    What you say is so true. The magic is all around us if we have eyes to see it. I love your “Love is the hostess if I RSVP” line!

  3. This is absolutely fabulous. I love this: I light a candle whose sweet scent reminds me
    I’m only a guest at a banquet of senses
    Stroking the wood of my grandmother’s chair I remember
    Love is my hostess when I RSVP.
    Perfect! Just perfect. ❤

  4. I love that thought that you’re a guest at a banquet of senses.
