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.

Sunrise Crowns the Coming Day

Sunrise crowns the coming day

with gilded glow, potential deep;

clothes each moment with a  grace

befitting royals;  while the sleep

is rousing off each dewy head,

beauty knits with reverent hand

a mantle out of golden thread,

and spreads its magic o’er the land.
