Hope and Magic

This week’s Ronovan Writes challenge is to use the words “hope” and “magic” in a haikai poem. I have 2 to share.


Aging

Children believe in

Magic, and the word “hopeless”

Is not known to them —

Why do adults turn away

From wells of ageless wisdom?


Coming and going,

Hope is not a magic spell.

How I love her face,

How her presence saves from hell,

Nothing else can take her place.
