It isn’t once upon a time

But instead a daily routine

We look for magic beyond

Never imagining

It is hidden plainly

Within the details


We seek the ever after

Made up of millions of tiny choices

Thinking the magnificent

Could never be mundane

Made up of to do lists

And errands and minutiae


We long for the fairytale

Blind to our existence in it

Overlooking the gap

In all of the old stories:

The fairytale remains undefined

Only created in the living of it


We seek all we have

Missing it in our grasp

Holding fast to the otherness

Losing faith in the ordinary

While the heart knows

The magic of our quiet truths


The fairytale of living and being alive – Caroline A. Slee
