Poem a day challenge #118 (Wandering Spells)

Wandering Spells

By Scott Bailey © 2013

 
 
Is it enough?
These words
We gather here
From across the globe
Our thoughts thrumming
Over strands of the web
They gather and agree
Mostly
And we know
What is wrong with the world
What is right
How to behave
And with well picked word
We condemn
Or cajole
the effective ones.

But is it enough?
Just the words.

Yet once upon a time
There was a spell
A magical combination
That set me on this course
Of reason and reason-ability

Maybe it is enough
If someone somewhere
Is moved by our spells
To do the right thing.

      Hello,

      We are good – due to go the panel for approval in just over a week. We haven’t yet been matched with a child but that should happen very soon.

      How have you been.

      I will write a fuller post with updates soon. Work has been hectic so haven’t had the time or energy.

        oh NO! Sorry about the broken ankle. I suppose Soho is quite a good place to be stranded. What family discoveries have you made?

        Soho is a fabulous place to be stranded; having an unexpected extended holiday, rather enjoying myself despite sore ankle.
