By Carmen
Wands blazing,
Magic lights.
Yarn forming

Well-loved tale
In child’s mind –
Emerges new
And much-refined.

Scarves traded,
Friendships change.
Spells adapted,
Story’s strange.

Tied together,
Thrown apart –
Play, once game,
Becomes an art.

Scar-crossed hero
And friends linger
On my niece’s
Tiny finger.




Finger Puppet
