If I could catch sunbeams,
I’d light your darkest days,
warming your heart when the world seems too cold to bear.
If I could shake the sky,
I’d sprinkle stars,
covering you with glittering dust, magic clinging to skin and hair.
If I could reach the clouds,
I’d twirl their softness,
making cotton candy to sweeten the bitterness of life.
This is inspired by a tweet Katsyarina wrote about a year ago with the line “if I could shake the sky” in it. That line has stuck with me. Thanks, lovely poetess. This post is for you and all who need a little magic or joy in their lives.
Al Lane has challenged us to post something light, funny, happy, or joyous. Why?
“To help us all get through the dismal dirtsack we lovingly call January, I’ve started a #banishtheblues hashtag. I’d love it if you joined me! Just write, or draw, or photograph…anything to #banishtheblues!”
