Bewitching

No photo description available.

#Fowc #Bewitching

You couldn’t put your finger on it,

the way this junior librarian looked her way

and you jumped right to it

Maybe it was her smile

or the way she had her hair

that captured your eye

you would share a drink at lunchtime

while the boys just stared and looked

and the cat stared from her handbag – their goose was cooked

But meeting that night – impossible

as off in the air she’d fly

leaving you down on terra firma

as she flew through the stars in sky

Magic

7th January 2019

#promptuarium

I’ve been doing the six word stories over Christmas…this piece is inspired by one

The tree may be gone for another year

and the decorations might be back in the box

but around and about the house

there’s enough pixie dust in the air

to bring a smile to a little child’s eyes

Conjure

Conjure

Crafting a dessert, is a bit of a magic trick

Oranges sliced and pineapples diced get laid in a dish, and

Next comes the syrup and then the batter, before the dish is covered in foil

Just before the dish is put in the oven – four holes are made to let out steam

Until its time – for it to be turned upside down and

Royally presented to all sat at the table

Excited little ones ask – can i have custard with mine ?

Right about now

in music classrooms in high schools up and down the land

four piece bands are being formed and

fret boards are taking a hammering

Repeated notes

in ordered formation

fill empty spaces on the musical page

forming a foundation to create something magical

Rythum and Blues follow guitar

in concert halls up and down the land

following the familiar formation

followed by the star playing the guitar strings

Illusion

Illusion

If you’re looking for the real thing – don’t forget to check twice

lots of people fall for the magic trick –

losing sight of what’s in front of them

unless you focus your attention – you’ll get

sucked in by the grandeur of it all

ignore the fancy effects – the flashy costumes

on reflection – you’ll be taking on a pig in a poke

note the guy doing the deal – wants you to go for it
