A Romance of Magic (Draft 1)

A Romance of Magic (Draft 1)

If only I could be magic,
I’d be the first cry,
the seeker of the hug

the playful child
with no plan but to
embrace the world

and in jocular College
get a phD in kindness
with a minor in chuckle
and have the faculty not mind me
add a subject as
the students play with Romance
as if we all knew each other
as intimates of the Universe

and as if
the game included
everyone’s rules.

  1. I wish i were magic…I like playful child with no plan but to embrace the world and the phd in kindness with a minor of chuckle. Intimates of the universe? That would be quite a game, if it could include everyone’s rules.

    1. Thanks. Hmm, I suppose that everyone would have to feel unthreatened and let there be a joyful chaos where collisions were mild and like bumpy handshakes or splashes on a water ride and for a few minor bumps a bandaid with a beautiful logo that said “Hero” and “we love you”.
