Make Magic – A Poem

Note: I was supposed to edit this poem last night, but then Alan Rickman died. WHAT IS IT WITH THIS WEEK AND CANCER TAKING AWESOME BRITS AWAY? 😦 Nevertheless, I realized that this is a nice tribute to Rickman’s Snape (although really my favorite role of his was Dr. Lazarus in Galaxy Quest—by Grabthar’s Hammer!).

Inhale

hold, within
that breath, the twinkle
of a wish
in cinder.
Feed it,
shape it with air, hold
within that mind
the heft of liquid will
in hands curled as if
the weight of dreams
already are.

Hold, within.

Exhale.
