are we not what we are

magic-is-afoot-s

my dream is magic rising
my dream calls spirits
cosmic bridges
wishes joined to starry wings
wings singing songs into the air

the spirits dance their circles through the portals of the clouds

we are but voices sailing
the ancient shores of secret galaxies

A quadrille for dVerse where Linda asks us to think about magic.  My quadrille is a cento, composed of lines from poems that pop up at my blog with my friend Nina, MethodTwoMadness, when I search “magic”.  I did have to add one word to bring the total number of words to 44, but otherwise the art, the title, and all the lines are taken from my old poems.

Obviously it’s a subject I consider frequently.

  1. I love the stencil repetition in your collage and the cosmic nature of your background. Your prayer (it reads like one to me) gives me the goosebumps. After just reading how it all came together, it reminds me of a witches’ brew.

  2. Fantastic magic of poetry and art, Kerfe! I love your creativity and these lines in particular:
    ‘the spirits dance their circles through the portals of the clouds’
    and
    ‘we are but voices sailing
    the ancient shores of secret galaxies’
