#Poem – magic

someone told me that there’s
magic about the year 2012.
i don’t know if i believe in
magic, because i’m focused
on what’s real and tangible
now.

i’ve for too long waited for
the magic to intrude on my
reality, take care of me,
remove all cares from me.
i know better.

and i still long for the magic
from outside to rescue
me.

what do i have to be
rescued from?
very little except myself,
so i know that this desire
to be rescued is just
delusion.

i don’t need cosmic
magic
. all i need is
the common, everyday
magic that i can find
in the voice of a friend,
a touch, a mid-day nap,
the sound of guitar strings
resonating together,
a creative urge,
an inspiration.
this is my magic for now.

  1. And again in #56…it’s like you’re writing down the thoughts swirling around inside my head: longing for magic (absolutely true of me), and realizing the beauty in the “common” magic that is all around us, that (extra)ordinary magic that surfaces just when it is needed most. Ahhh. You’re a blessing!
