Puff Of Smoke

I remember the children’s party.

There was a magician.

I’d never seen a magician before.

He waved a stick called a wand

and a puff of blue smoke came out,

like magic.

And hidden in the smoke were flowers,

real flowers

showing through a gap in the smoke.

Since then

I have discovered that some people

can usually find a gap in the smoke

where the light shines through,

like magic.
