What Is magic

allpoetry contest entry

What is magic
and where do you find it?
I think it comes from
hearts that open
and minds that sing
when they should
be paying attention.

I think it comes from
eyes that stare out windows
when dishes are
being washed.

What is magic
and where does it come from?
I saw some on a
sparrows wing
yesterday at my window
and a backyard squirrel
chittered spells at me
for hours.

What is magic
and how do you keep it?
Smoke rings have more
and hold the secret
of rainbows just
before they disappear.

I heard the music
as it went round the corner.
I wanted to follow
til it was gone in the night.
