Incoming~#poetry #themagicshop


Rainboot colors excite the toddler

The mother embraces her daughter’s delight

Irrelevant choices to tomorrow’s teen

Then the ring sounds

Gossip creates obliviousness

This child’s moment is now gone

A muted family awaits in tears

This home now silenced in an accident’s aftermath

Then the chimes clang

God extendeded their miracle today

Their previous moment is now gone

She thinks he’s the one over drinks

Love may have arrived in a blazer

Her loneliness possibly dissipating at last

Then the buzzer annoys

His smile now reeks of a secret spouse

Her previous moment is now gone

Incoming life changes the scene

The power of progress

Our destinies controlled by a call

Then this moment is gone
