mummed magic

the scarlet leaf
of the almost bare autumn tree,
s  l  o  w  l  y , ever s  l  o  w  l  y ,

from its home twig
to its grave earth.

the crystal snowflake
of the heavy, winter cloud
g e n t l y , ever g e n t l y ,

from its throne in heaven
to its melting ground.

the brave sprout
of the fresh, spring seed
s o f t l y , ever s o f t l y ,

its cotyledons’ cave
towards the sky’s bright, open shade.

the soft, infant rays
of the smiling, summer sun
g e n t l y , ever g e n t l y,
b

into tiny sparkles of warmth
to kiss the waiting land.

these are earth’s mummed magic,
they need no noise to be majestic.

P.S. Is it evident that I fantasize about four seasons too much? 😀

So my poetic pals, your task if you choose to accept it, is to pen a poem using the word MAGIC in some form or write a piece that is quite simply MAGICAL. You know you can.

  1. Rose. This is pure extravaganza. I am stunned. Jaw dropped. Eyes opened wide. A sheen brushed past the cornea. The sensory delights that is served here is pure class. I can smell. I can hear. I can see the falling, the descending, all in Slow-Mo. Terrific! Keep it up

  2. I’m so glad I chanced upon your blog. This is so so beautiful. I love the effect you created with the cleverly crafted spacing of words like ‘falling’ and ‘descending’. I could almost see the leaf falling and the snowflakes descending. ❤
