Magic Snow-Globe

delphinium seed head

Window to a netherworld,

a looking-glass of white;

crisply permed and freshly curled,

a monochrome delight.

Wait upon the windowsill

for handsome Prince and horse;

magic snow-globe, if you will,

please whisk me to your source.

    Precious thoughts. You write in the brightest white of silky lace. You are a true weaver of hopes and dreams… 🙂 Eric

  2. Oh, Melody, this is my favorite for the month – so far! The picture and poem are pure magic. ( the Narnian kind)
    Blessings to you dear friend ~ Wendy

    PS – No white glitter at my place yet!

      I so love that you linked this to Narnia – I so often think of winter in Narnian terms, of the land being held in enchantment until Aslan comes! Not even one little bit of white yet? I suppose the temp isn’t cold enough for all that rain to turn into the sparkly stuff yet… I don’t know whether to pity you or be jealous! 🙂

    Ooooh, I LOVE this, Melody–I have a particular fondness for snow globes (which reminds me I should move my Christmas angel from the hallway to my desk so I can enjoy it!!).
