magic

i am a magician

i. play tricks with my energy

i wake up tired and blue

and in a blink

i might feel joy

privileged to just be here

i look into a strangers eyes

wondering what i might find

will I pull them inside

into my field of sublime

or stand back

wondering if they will look away

or maybe

just maybe

the current of us

will feel the instant rush

the spark

the electricity

all we never see

only feel

is it possible

to just sense

so intimately

the miracle of aware

to care

to trust

In that temporary place

where we adjust our magic to must

because we feel so differently in knowing

there is a pulse that moves inside us

the erratic beating of our hearts

the most alluring spell in human alchemy

the meaning

in the coming

and in the going

in the knowing

of being all alone

under the big blue sky

and yet realizing someone else

is the reason why

we feel so alive

abracadabra

we are magicians of the heart

what we always knew to be true

in lieu of everything

nothing else will do

so tell me it is so

what else can a human possibly do

all that is magic in me

all that is magic in you

the words we speak

create our days

the poet inside us

the poetry becomes us

the illumination of mystery

the way

the ways

to find our way
