Thaumaturge: Shadorma

THAUMATURGE

Fancy that
The magic of words
You love me
Then you don’t
Schrödinger’s cat in a hat
A conjuring trick

Words To Music

It’s a while since we had music. But no more. 😀

Words?
You want words?
Hear and think on.
Awakening is but a breath away.
But staying (t)here …
Now, that’s another matter …
Meantime … (Me in time)
sit back and enjoy …

Talk, it’s only talk
Arguments, agreements, advice, answers,
Articulate announcements
It’s only talk

Talk, it’s only talk
Babble, burble, banter, bicker bicker bicker
Brouhaha, balderdash, ballyhoo
It’s only talk
Back talk

Talk talk talk, it’s only talk
Comments, clichés, commentary, controversy
Chatter, chit-chat, chit-chat, chit-chat,
Conversation, contradiction, criticism
It’s only talk
Cheap talk

Talk, talk, it’s only talk
Debates, discussions
These are words with a D this time
Dialogue, duologue, diatribe,
Dissension, declamation
Double talk, double talk

Talk, talk, it’s all talk
Too much talk
Small talk
Talk that trash
Expressions, editorials, explanations, exclamations, exaggerations
It’s all talk
Elephant talk? Elephant talk? Elephant talk!

Love a tiny flower

Dread Allurement (In Sept Format)

DREAD ALLUREMENT

Gone
Summer
Samhain’s come
The Dark Season
Breathes a chill
Fire
Burns

Burns
And yet
Has no warmth
I’m shivering
What’s that sound?
A door
Creaks

Creaks
Again
T’is the sidhe*
The Otherworld
Shadowy
Beckons
Me

Me
Oh my
May I dare?
Go find her there
My heart’s love
Passed on
Gone

Threshold

THRESHOLD

There’s this word “magic”
We think we know what it means
Till we know better

Serendipity

SERENDITY

Fools define it as
A fortunate happenstance
While behind the scenes …

Flutterbys

FLUTTERBYS

Feelings flicker on and off
Change places like a carousel

You know …
or else you do not know …

You love …
or else you do not love …

You hate …
or else you do not hate …

You fear …
or else you do not fear …

Admire …
worship …
or else despise …

… him
or … her
or … them
or … people

You think or else you do not think of
these feelings flickering on and off
changing places like a carousel

Words
just words
simply words?

Magician

MAGICIAN

You scan a few words
Thoughts and feelings rise and fall
Construct a whole world
