Magic


Near to Jung’s Big Red Book,
a bunch of roses – multitudinous
splashing – not logical
but simply pressing the effort

of crazy existence with no collateral.
Magic is rare and difficult, colourful,
but impelled by gusto and stupidity;
voracity of jester, drunkard and clown.

We need to make room for fools because,
in the end, there is nothing to understand
as wind rattles a casement,
spilling a scent of arcing flowers

and reasonable and unreasonable stand
shoulder to shoulder, bow in acceptance.

  2. Very nice! The world is a cruel place for people who are dubbed as mentally compromised, "unreasonable", foolish…etc. If more took an understanding and considerate view of these characters, the world would be all the better for it. "Pay attention, care for those most difficult to care for, 'bow in acceptance and honor them as fellow human beings' as it will make you a better person" - that is the message sounding loud and clear to me. Very well written! The flow and rhyme scheme are both excellently crafted! Thank you for sharing your enriching thoughts!
