for Octpowrimo day 4  – the prompt is to write a poem featuring magic.  The magic was missing when I tried to write, and my first poem was sheer doggerel.


Magic is an overused word –
I don’t believe in it and yet, and yet
a glorious spell of autumn weather
arrives by magic, coquette,
to cheer and clear the blues
rejuvenate, illuminate my days.
Whence comes this magic I couldn’t say,
but I really hope that it will stay
to put a spring in my old step.

 Then I looked out of the window, and this little haiku arrived 

Magic is made to 
miracle of misty morning
as the sun bursts through

    I love this part:
    “a glorious spell of autumn weather
    arrives by magic, coquette”

    I happen to prefer doggerel to most blank verse!
    You have abracadabra-ed successfully!

    Viv makes magic with
    juxtaposing everyday
