Magic By Another Name

Magic Powers found at wallpapers.free-review.net

Hazard a guess

at ways we connect

in this world

of magic.

Tragic

yet gentle

believers deny

harsh cut

of pessimistic words

that endanger

thoughts,

as stranger,

absurd.

Magic unbelievable?

Once, even computers

were inconceivable…

  1. I liked your poem which is expressing a recurring thought to me. This is well articulated. I was there when we went from not having ’em to a computer world. It’s still a mystery to many people my age and many think if they can’t understand “how” they work, they can’t use one. How silly–most of them know how to type but consider computers “evil”. I’ve been with this tool since its birth and it’s an extension of my mind and fingers..a tool nothing more or less.

    1. You are so right Gay! I look at the sci-fi shows and movies and constantly listen to friends that think these things are impossible, but we would have said video chat was impossible years ago! My grandfather still refuses to use and ATM!

    Pessimists about magic are stranger than the believers. True. I like how you wrote this, dialogue like, as if a debate might rage “in this world of magic.” But no, this one is for Magic, and science can just sit down!

    Truly said! It’s just difficult to predict. Only something magical works. Even then it’s hard to explain.

  5. My partner and I talk about this often…I remember when I was younger watching Star Trek and the ‘magic’ slidding doors and now they are common place. Nicely done.

  6. Seriously people need to think about one syfy movie coming true and that is “Terminator”. Scientists are working very hard to build a robot with a mind and if you look around then one might see how advanced we are towards that goal. Look at what a little tiny cell phone can do. We might be ten years to 100 years before it comes true but I think we are closer to 15 to 20 years from seeing a computer that can think for itself. But I do have to say that magic is wonderful to watch but it is true that once you find out the tricks then it is as if the magic died.

    Thanks for working this weeks Theme Thursday Connections into so many prompts, and thank you for playing.

    God bless.
