Empty Hands


Nothing up my sleeve,
Magic has nowhere to hide.
Absence of wonder.

Ah, finally back on the poetry train! So happy to be a part of Writing 101 this month. Now I can try to be motivated to write some poetry as the year ends. Kicking off this course with a haiku!

Writing 101, Day 1: Magic

It’s the end of the year. Nature is already entering its revolution phase: hibernation in the Northern Hemisphere, burning heat in the Southern. It’s the magic of life. Like Mother Nature, you too can give your life a new beginning.

What magic have you accomplished in the past year? Be it small or grand, it’s worth celebrating in a poem!
