Poetry

The words of magic

The words of magic

can be seen in lines of searching ants,

in the spiral of a snail’s shell,

in the veins of a leaf.

 

The words of magic

can be spoken in verse,

yawned into a pillow,

humoured in the bath.

 

The words of magic

can be expressed through dance,

placed in heavy footsteps,

sounded in a run.

 

The words of magic

can live on our skin,

reside in our blood,

beat with our heart.

 

The words of magic

are never far away.

Check over your shoulder

and greet them with a smile

on the play of the wind.
