The Magic is always near

Sometimes you know the Magic is near

It somersaults and pirouettes in the air

Announcing that someone special is there

She knows how to bring a smile to your face

Generous in spirit, not frilled behind the lace

A heart so warm, filled abundantly with space

She once waved her magic wand to the star

And spotted me amidst the milky way from afar

Soul to soul chemistry, that’s just how things are

When you reach out and touch what you can’t see

You know that this was always destined to be

That we’d touch each other’s lives and hold a key

Unlocking memories, the mysteries of our dreams

Because we know that it’s not always as it seems

We are to each other as the river to the streams

So here I stand raising my glass and saying cheers

Wishing you many blossoms and harvesting years

And if you cry today, let it be with joyful tears

      1. Sorry to burst the bubble darling – I live in the Southern Hemisphere, South Africa to be exact that is why our Solstices are reversed. Which part of the world are you from?

      2. Darling you have not burst my bubble at all. We are so on a very similar wavelength! Even as I wrote that last message, it occurred to me that you might live in a part of the world where things are upside down and how right I was!!! Thank you for this! I live in London, UK where summer solstice is June 21.

      3. Ah! so you are in a similar timezone though I know you set your clock back a bit. Are you one or 2 hours behind at this time. Btw I share a birthday with Prince William. I had occasion to wish him and tell him so – broke all the protocols in doing that LOL!

      4. It’s 5:45am here in London. What time is it in SA? We are one hour behind because it is British Winter Time. Come the last weekend in March we will put the clocks forward one hour.
        Tell me more about your ‘protocol breaking’ experience please if it is within protocol to reveal I hope it’s not ‘top secret’. hahahaha
        I am officially giving you notice to compose my birthday poem which will be October 18. LOL

      5. How demanding you are hehehe! I’m sure it will be a pleasure ( will put the date in my calendar) You are up early – it’s just after 8 0’clock here.
        I’ve worked with projects supported by the UK and used to be on their guest list for some social events. This one was celebrating the Queen’s birthday and both princes were in attendance. They were taken around to meet everyone and Prince W. settled in my group next to me. So when they announced his upcoming birthday, I just stuck my hand out and wished him and told him that we shared a birthday. How cheeky is that? It’s simply not the “done” thing but he was very gracious. On a serious note I realise it would be construed a security risk.

      6. Yes I can be demanding – perhaps you can refer to that minor indiscretion (on my part) in the poem. You can then go on to list my many attributes (which will become apparent during the course of the coming months) LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
        Thanks for sharing about Prince William. Awesome!!! How often are you in the UK? Or will that be a ‘security risk’ to tell me. LOL
        Personally, I’d risk security to shake Prince Harry’s hand – now he’s gorgeous! :)))))

      7. I was teasing you😀 Yes I recall how mad everyone was to meet Prince H. I’ve travelled through London twice but not recently – most of my travels were work related. I still have a yearning to travel and that’s part of my dilemma. I want to work in areas that allow me to travel.

      8. Hahahahahaa. I know! Well I hope your dream comes true. Remember you can make it happen and if you’re ever in London again, pop in for tea and crumpets …:))))
        ps. I did detect a little ‘English’ accent in a comment made about Prince William. I wonder if you realised that …lol

      9. Well,I took the step I promised to take this morning and I’ll know the outcome on Wednesday next week. If it’s in my favour, then, I expect to travel at some point.

        Any English expressions emanate from it being my first language but don’t forget the influence of colonisation.

      10. Please let me know what the outcome is. And that is only if you care to share Chevvy. It sounds like an exciting time for you and if it is to do with travel, then my wish for you that your dream comes true, looks as if it might. 🙂
        And I was teasing about the English accent, but I take your point.

      11. Well they say you must be careful what you wish for. I’ll have to be careful of whether it’s a bus or train outcome and which one I want. I’ll let you know the outcome.

      12. Yes, I believe it’s in the stars. I have this amazing friend whom I call my soul sister. We met on a train in Switzerland 4 years ago. She is an astrologer and lives in Austria. She has been a big influence on my life ever since. I guess I’ve been an influence for her too but she brings the stars to me.

      13. I love stories like this. Chance meetings? I’d say there are no chance meetings. Just brilliantly orchestrated moves by our guardian angels …
        Did you know Librans and Gemini’s are supposed to get on really well? I know you’re on the cusp of Gemini/Cancer, but I’m choosing to ignore that. My good friend is a Gemini (June 20), so I’m not likely to forget your birthday! 🙂
        I believe in fate, but I also believe that you can change your destiny to a degree … more on that as we get to know each other better. Hark at me huh? You might not want to do that! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      14. I’m a synchronicity person so I agree totally with you. I was happy to hear that Lady G had also read a book called “God Winks” That book and The Secret are just two of the books that influenced me being receptive to how the universe works. But common sense tells me that our whole creation is set up as an ecosystem that joins us in magical ways.
        I’ll send you some links to earlier posts when I can find them.
        My younger brother is a Libra and we’re “cool like dat” In my book I’m a Gemini.
        In terms of destiny – even though the stars might guide our way, we also have choice and free will even if the choice is between a rock and a hard place. So let’s do this thing – get to know each other LOL!

      15. I’m all for us getting to know each other! Here’s to the start of a beautiful friendship: it’s in the stars!!!! 🙂
        I must try and get hold of those books. Lady g mentioned ‘God winks’ to me when we were talking about synchronicity or was it serendipity or was it coincidence??? lol
        Is your brother a September or October Libran? I have one brother who’s an Aquarian. (Feb)
        Glad you’re a Gemini, but if you were a Cancer, I’d still think you were cool. 🙂

    1. What a lovely message here Ron! I can see that she adores you so that says something special about you. As to the imagery – it comes so naturally because she is so expressive. One day, I might stargaze a poem for you! 😀

    1. Hahaha! thank you Marie, I can just imagine you stomping your feet – you have me in stitches. My poems that I like best are the ones that just flow without too much working over. This was one of them because it is a spiritual thing – I aint met the girl afterall, but I feel her spirit -does that make sense? Thanks again for your compliment.😀

      1. Hahahaha! It’s good to laugh! You are welcome Chevvy8. Yes I agree, the best poems write themselves, all you do is provide the medium (pen/paper/computer). If it helps us to bond (lol), yea, I feel her spirit too. Lady G is one helluva gal! :))

      2. And you too my dear. I have a disclaimer on my blog that if you land here, there was a reason. So I’m glad to meet you. I’m feeling rather tired but you’ve made me smile and that makes my day worth it. I will pay you a visit once I’ve caught up on some sleep. Best. Chevvy.😀

      3. Chevvy, I agree. There is always a reason. We don’t always see it at the time though. I could give you an example of a recent ‘reason’, but you are already tired and I don’t want to be arrested by the Sleep Police. LOL
        I would love you to drop in! Best, Marie (Lady G calls me Lady M btw) :))

      4. I told you it wasn’t going to be exciting, but here goes, Chevvy8: It was around the time I was looking for a new home. I thought I had found the perfect house after months of searching. The agent said he would put the offer through to the vendor the next day. I was beyond excited about finding the perfect house at the perfect price. The next day I heard nothing and for the next couple of months garbled, confused and irritating feedback regarding the ‘perfect’ property. I gave up in the end, cursing the agent and losing faith in people. Fast forward to a couple of months later when I was convinced that there was nothing out there for me, I found the PERFECT house, even better than the other perfect one.
        So, that is why I say there is always a reason for everything, although you may not be able to see it at the time. 🙂

      5. That is so true. Sometimes, we create a lot of angst pursuing what we want when what we should be putting the message out there and once we feel we’ve done enough, let go and let the universe take over.

        As I’m writing this, I’m thinking about an important decision I need to make go which involves letting go. I know that it’s easier said than done though.

        Often we get caught up with “what ifs” rather than accepting the route we took was the route we were meant to take. You’ve given me an idea for my next poem now 😀

      6. I can’t wait to see/read your poem! I hope you credit me with the ‘idea’. LOL Sometimes it can be hard to allow the universe to take over. It takes a certain mind-set, because I think we are ‘programmed’ to strive to make things happen. That said, when we ‘allow’ the natural to flow, we find we can sit back and accept the outcome because that was what was meant to be. When we learn to ‘accept’, I think that we are more contented and don’t stress too much about the outcome of things we can’t influence or change.
        I hope I’ve helped you to reach your decision about what you need to ‘let go’. You did say there was a reason why I landed here, and perhaps this is it. 🙂

      7. Yes, I will tag you but I can’t assure how good it will be LOL. Yes I know what you mean about it not being easy to let go. I suppose that’s where our sixth sense kicks in, helping us to know how to find the balance. I know the Bible says something about “Faith without action is useless” For me this means that we are not entirely exonerated from setting things in motion.

        Well, between today and Monday, I’ll let you know the impact of this conversation since I have decided to make a call on my “perfect house” situation😀

      8. I love that we have coined a new phrase for situations which require a ‘reason’. lol I hope your ‘perfect house’ situation becomes the perfect ‘des res’! hahaa Laughing at my small joke, NOT your situation that you need to resolve. Can I be of help in anyway? I ask not from a place of ‘nosy-ness’ lol, but just genuinely wanting to know if I can assist you in your decision.
        The Bible reference is good! And true!

      10. Oh Chevvy I hope I haven’t offended you! It’s so hard sometimes (the written word) and mis-interpretations can be made. I am not at all offended. It’s just my sense of humour, so maybe the way I worded it looks as if I have taken offence and I want to reassure you that you have not. We are definitely all good! My humour, I see now that it can sometimes be taken the wrong way. Sorry Chevvy! Our first tiff! hehe

      11. It’s true that we can easily misinterpret the written word, we are both poets after all and there are loads of meanings and nuances in words as you well know. But we’re still on a learning curve – you and I.

        I have my own wicked sense of humour but perhaps more measured on the web.
        I’ve posted the poem which I’ve attributed to you for the prompt. It’s called “What ifs”
        I have an errand to run, so will catch you later Marie. Enjoy your day!😊

      1. Hello Jade. It’s great to meet you too. I’m intrigued by the comment you left. All I can say is that we’re all on the pathway to trying to figure things out and we’ll always stumble along the way, no matter how good we think we are. I’ll pop over now.😀
