Secrets from afar… #WednesdayVerses

All they saw
Was an old house,
Not many thought
It felt like home.

As I looked on
From afar now,
Inside they stood
Drenched in love.

Sharing secrets
And stories made up;
Of magic carpets,
And talking teacups.

Of flying rickshaws,
Like daddy owns;
Playing hopscotch,
With old gemstones.

With each story,
The laughter grew,
And as I watched,
My hopes renewed.

Asked they to me,
When I went inside,
Of secrets I could share;
And with an old smile,
I held them and told,
Magic was right there.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
