Magic
Now is the season of magic,
from the witches of Halloween
to the fairies and elves of
Father Christmas.
Only for children,
though.
Magic for adults has Pagan qualities
referencing the myths and legends
that made sense of earlier times,
though
some still invite their ancestors
to picnic with them on the Day Of The Dead.
Only for children,
though
are the fairy stories and fantasies
of yesterday and today.
But children know
that these are only the building blocks
of magic.
Yes, children know
that magic is something you make.
Sometimes adults forget.
