Do You Believe in Magic?


the magic of a hat is just that
shape size color fabric
imbues the wearer with its spirit
she loved her emerald hat
for when she wore it 
invisible realms
revealed themselves to her
~

imagine that
a magical hat

  1. Oh, I am a big believer in the magic of hats! They are vital protection from the sun, fun to wear, & handy to hide behind when a fit of shyness strikes...

    I have many but none are emerald. I think I should remedy that situation right away, so that those lovely invisible realms will appear to me too! c]:-)

  40. ...I'm sending this over to my mom. She wears a hat with everything...and they often seem magic. At her sister's funeral yesterday, she wore a 20s style hat. My son commented the style seemed to offer her protection. Sad eyes framed by the brim of a hat.

    Your girl with the green hat brings peace.
