Poetry and Magic

POETRY and MAGIC

 

Does it scan?

Does it flow?

Does it set your heart aglow?

Do the lyrics

Lift your spirits

From the depths?

Sometimes it doesn’t

And sometimes it can

But it

Really

Doesn’t

Need to

Rhyme

Anyway.

 

Build the words

Like a trail –

Circumnavigating planets

And reach out for those moments of pure glory,

When the well of words is full –

Overflowing –

Like a dam;

For sometimes you need walls

And

Sometimes,

Yachts.

 

 

All flow –

All build –

All praise the rhythm of life

As it tumbles from my pen

To touch the magic…
