Spells

By Gurpreet Kumar

 

I am the sorcerer  

Casting ancient spells of dragon transmutation.

Fire from the tongue, 

Let the fierce flames of poetry spill. 

 

Lightning fingers, I hypnotise,

go through your eye.

Let my words swirl in the mind,

Words that can bring the dead back alive.

 

I can change the seasons there.

Birth never-ending showers that give rise to salty rivers 

if you dare to absorb my magic.

I can cast shadows that will paint you black 

 

Or chant frozen hyms, that can freeze time,

turn your skin into that of a goose.

Make your hair stand on edge,

Eager to watch my spectacular show.

 

I fuse reality and illusion,

Diffuse into many ears, I have the ability to fly.

Infuse with the psyche, I come by,

Blow a kiss of hope or summon whirlwinds of fear and doubt. 

 

I have the power of invisibility, massless yet can change ones entire life in and out. This is the power of words.
