Dear Hallmark, Why won't you return my calls?
Butterfly Magic

Deep inside the woodland
in a meadow rarely seen,
she kneels beside a daisy
in a circling field of green.

My arm is soft around her
like a child with a butterfly -
afraid to stir the stillness
that keeps it from the sky.

A fragile spell holds her bound -
a fairy wreath of chance
that’s simple magic, yet profound:
I am the one entranced

in the middle of a moment,
in the promise of a vow
of rapture in the present -
an infinity of now

stretching on, slow as sunshine
in a meadow rarely seen
with a wandering daisy
stranded in the green.

We were thinking of something more along the lines of "Get well soon"

This poem would be *perfect* for a "happy third anniversary of your successful return from being lost in the woods" card.

I'm Mom's favorite, Sarah.

I've been the featured poet on her refrigerator for 62 weeks running.

I sent her flowers and a nice sentiment.

I'd give to a charity in her name, but her favorite charity is a guy named Benny Hinn. He already gets half of her widow's pension each month.

That's enough.

You need to have a candy artist make a meadow of mint grass, a daisy of spun-sugar...oh wait! I'm so silly! The Carl man can because he takes a lot of words and makes the world seem good!
