A Spirit Thing

It’s a spirit thing.
It seems you can’t catch,
but you know you can.
You keep looking back
to feel its magic again.

In each passing day,
it’s coming your way,
moving through in
kaleidoscopic view,
gracing your day
rejuvenating,
renewing you.

In a baby’s smile,
a second glance,
a simple touch,
a bit of romance,
enticing food
boosting the mood,
a delightful song
when you sing along,
belly-laughing
that leaves you crying,
starlit skies
that leave you sighing,
given times
to enjoy before dying.

It’s a spirit thing
you think you can’t catch,
but you know you can.
You keep looking back
to feel its magic again.

  1. Jan,

    I love the rhythm that moves these lines along.
    Your zest for life is showing girl, and it’s a lovely
    thing. Now, tell me about that photo. Is it really
    a night light levitating or have I been up too long?
    I am sleepy, but your poem gives me energy and
    your photograph has my imagination working overtime.

  2. Hi Jan

    Agree with Sarah on this, the rhythm and uplifting message engages the reader with hope and optimism. And how true, the simplest glance at something new or beautiful, a warm touch or kind word, a sunset or sunrise,– whatever it may be, is the spirit’s magic, its sacred gift to us.

    Thank you for this,
    take care

    Many of the things that make life good!
