Words For Magic

Words For Magic

written by: Carol Shamon


I’m searching for other words
for magic

Words that don’t need a cape
words as common as sunrise
as special as birthday

Words with stardust
and cinnamon
and just plain dust
and caves
and grottos

Words like sacred
and religious
and superstitious

Words that bump into someone on the street
that bump
that thump in your heart
a pebble in your shoe
that quick decision
to go this way instead of that

Words like thunderous
and deafening
and whisper
and stillness

then floating

The word you feel in your body
that’s been planted
and neglected
then watered
then blooms
