Author statement: The story behind this work which is a part of the “Ladders and Fences” series – I am riding a magic carpet – see my hair blowing in the wind. I am free and I am enjoying the wind in my face and the sheer joy of flying on a magic carpet. A magic carpet can be anything, life, a dream, a hope, a wish anything. It’s the ride that thrills us. Again the journey. I wrote a poem for this work and it is in my book which includes all the works in this series.

“Magical Moments”

warm soft yellow light
floods the room
windows shadow
stretched across the floor

crystals catching the
sun
making rainbows
swirl around her

quietly
she sat in the
warm yellow room
on her carpet

watching   allowing
rainbow colors

to weave
through her
and flow from
her

magical
moments
