Ordinary Magic

entry picture

The realisations that a bit of mindfully living in the moment can bring....


It's magical that we taste

There's magic in a touch

Magic surrounds all the things

Which we don't think of much


The splendour of our sunshine

Remarkable drops of rain

The miracle of each day

That we've awoke again


The greatness of those blades of grass

That grow beneath our feet

The fantastic gift of friendship

With those we randomly meet


All sensations that we can't see

We definitely, can feel

This is why magic may be ordinary

But Magic is certainly

There's magic in your rhyming Ruth,
The truth and nothing but the truth.
The flow of words is a special treat,
To the readers we randomly meet,

When reading this poem
it puts me under
a special magic spell - - -

one I don't want to
ever come to an end.

Ah yes, the big Magic is the important one.

Thalia is important uppercase Muse Thalia not the ordinary lowercase common garden variety muse. She insisted (actually kicked up a bit of a fuss. Give me my proper status she said. I obliged. Gotta keep the woman happy). Yep, she's pure Magic......

Thanks for reading Don, I appreciate your comments. Well, there is small magic and big Magic, it's just about putting the emphasis on it.

Now, is your Muse the one who resides in your mind, Thalia for instance? whilst other forms of muse arrive from external stimuli?

Thank You for your kind comments Fred, I do appreciate it. That is a really interesting point about how a different accent can potentially change the flow of poem!

A choice piece Ruth. The rhyming and rhythm was excellent. I'm assuming you did the lower/uppercase magic on purpose similar to muse/Muse..?...

Love the melodic flow and message created by your words.
I had to chuckle, after I read the second stanza twice.
Americans and British folk pronounce 'again' different.
You folks pronounce the hard A.
Americans generally do not.
I was married to a Brit.
