Ordinary Magic

Moonlight and shadow

Play against my walls

Trace my curves

Reveal my secrets

In this backside of the night

Owls swoop by my open window

Hooting softly in the velvet dark

Black cats swirl around my ankles

While I crush lavender and thyme

Between my fertile palms

And begin to weave my spells

      1. I guess we are both poets who seldom write poems that have a general theme. We tend to focus on strong visceral emotions like romance, anger, pain, loss….so our poetry stems out of those emotions. For me it’s kind of like being an actor…I don’t know if I can “cry on cue”…but I am very good at improving off of other actors.
