Magic: NaPoWriMo 2018, Day 27

The Magician

Through what I choose and where I give in,
I create the world I live in.
If I’m a trickster, I trick myself
and lay my talents on a shelf.
Seize control and I gain the world,
all my inner self unfurled.
Magic’s not a thing without
or a thing to sell or flout.
It’s simply using the strength within
to play the game of life and win.

The NapoWriMo prompt for the day is: pick a card (any card) from this online guide to the tarot, and then write a poem inspired either by the card or by the images or ideas that are associated with it.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

        That’s true. It’s a lot easier for a middle-class North American to say this than some girl born to a destitute family living in a slum in Asia. I think we rarely have a clue just how different our world-view is, loaded as we are with options.
