OctPoWriMo Day 4, 2015:
prompt: Magic-Take the time to write a peom featuring magic. It could be the Harry Potter fame with wands and He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. Or it could be the things that you find so beautiful, so wonderful that they feel like magic when you observe them. Have fun with it!
It’s terribly fitting that Tamara chose magic for today’s prompt since it is October, and Halloween, which centers around magic, is coming up quickly.
I love magic…of all kinds. From Hogwarts to nature. My favorite type of magic is the simplest, and (in an ironic twist) most complex, spell of enchantment: the connections between people, whether that be friendship or love. I also love trying to find magic in the small things, the normal day-to-day sorcery we all experience. You just need to look (with your eyes closed sometimes) to find it. The laughter of happy children playing, the sigh of the wind through the leaves on the tree, or the fairy hiding in the flowers.
P.S. This weekend has been crazy busy so I will catch up with commenting next week. If I haven’t visited you yet, don’t worry, I’ll get there. Promise. 😉

A spell that weaves itself in a simple touch,
The allure of wanting something just so much.
The enchantment held in a single glance,
And the magnetism in that longed-for dance.
The prophecy of kindness when compassion wins,
And the power of happiness when love begins.
The common-place miracles that exist
Turning dreams into more than a wish.
This everyday magic opens the door
To belief in something so much more.
So never lose sight of the mundane things,
But don’t stop believing in extraordinary dreams.
For sorcery hides in the most normal of places,
You just need to look beyond their faces.
