March 24: Magic

Queen of Heartsthe night we
played cards
drawing together
friends for
communion
and shouts as
hearts
were broken
in spades

our brief sojourn
away from the
crowd
into the cool
night air
effervescent
i will never forget
the tenderness
the loving kindness
and the connection
created with common
bonds
that whirled around
us like star-dust
integrating our
souls into one
moment.

magical.

dedicated to my Dear Husband

On March 24, 1874, magician Harry Houdini was born.  Reflect on magic.

    Taking a respite together, from the common struggle, strengthens the fighting bond.
