‘Wizardry'

Magic doesn’t knock

all at once.

You must plant

and water

and tend

the golden seed inside you.

But one day -

maybe Tuesday afternoon -

you realize

something magical is brewing.

When you feel your restive power rising,

simply watch.

Feel the swirl

of molecules around you.

You are summoning

the heavens

to your fingertips.

Patience.

The whole sky and oceans

will be at your command.
