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 Β 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. πŸ˜‰

 

Conventional Magic

By Jesi Scott

 

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.

Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
