magic trick
a supernatural conjuring

nudge May flowers from the earth

Poem:      20 times ( x ic )

.

he dreamt of things which defied logic,

his heart was malleable and plastic,

forever and always the romantic,

he pined for the times nostalgic,

when he was able to trip the light fantastic,

when life in general was not that frantic

unfortunately, reality taught him to be sarcastic

many suggested that he go play in the traffic

his response was to always play the dramatic

lay on the floor and flop around like a spastic

friends and family learned to ignore that tactic

they pushed his buttons just to see him panic

at last the diagnosis came back as a manic

all of his symptoms were crazy classic

he was given steps to recovery that were drastic

they named consequences that were graphic

with no change his life would become static

learn to be wrong, give up the fanatic

he changed, he laughed, he loved, he was ecstatic

was it a miracle or was it magic

Those Who Don’t Believe

.

.

“And above all,

watch with glittering eyes

the whole world around you

because the greatest secrets

are always hidden in

the most unlikely places.

Those who don’t believe in magic

will never find it.”

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

magic

hocus pocus

now you don’t

now you see it

prestidigitation

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

happy, joyous, free

the addict recovering

ever vigilant

Poem:

.

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:”
Thus St. Francis of Assisi begins his prayer
one soul at a time asking love to increase
replacing negatives one need not bear

from seven negatives, each a positive given
a personal dedication to prayer votives
become willing to accept God’s admonition
sympathise, love, abandon selfish motives

“divine Master” give me the strength
to do what is right at any price
the courage to go to any length
to make this world a place that is nice

know the wonderful paradoxes,
that you must give to receive
satisfaction that the soul transfixes
love more for happiness to achieve

have faith, there is nothing to despair
enjoy a beautiful life given for us to share
