The Daily Poem

Day 55

Advertisements

I mentioned earlier in the week that my original plan for a Daily Poem has gone a bit agley and that I would be going a bit easier on myself in future. This is a case in point – a poem that may well never fully blossom, because it needs work and I’m not sure I like it enough to put the effort in. I do like the idea of it, though, so perhaps it’s a good thing that it sees the light of day, even if only this once… 

Careful with that Box, Pandora

There is magic in the places where elements meet:
Where land meets sea;
Where sea meets sky;
Where sky becomes space
And is transformed into the backdrop for a hundred-billion stars.

There is magic in the places where elements meet:
Dark, thunderous magic that destroys and reclaims,
Light, healing magic that nourishes and nurtures.

It is there in the whisper of water,
The breath of a breeze,
In the chill of ice and the heat of fire,
And the clash and turmoil and juxtaposition of all things.
It is the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel.
It is the blazing sunset at the end of a long day

There is magic all around us,
Waiting, for good or bad, to be discovered.
It comes in many shapes and sizes,
Gift-wrapped, boxed in many guises.
Open with care and stand well back:
You never know what lies beneath the lid
