Everyday magic

If you look long enough

into this magic tree

that’s taken root outside my window

here’s what you will see —

a lattice of leaves

transform mid-morning

into starry sky….

Street sounds,

motorcar horns


the musical clip-clop

of a horse…

cruel smoke and smog

filter through

as shape-shifting stardust…

and tears charmed

right out of my eyes

to become

drops of dew, drops of rain

on the leaves’ undersides…
