Shimmer of Magic


Light dancing on top of the water

In honeycomb wave patterns

An occasional collision of waves

Creating an infinity pattern of white.

Just this.

Water and sunlight.

So simple.

So natural.

Why does it seem so

Magical?

Is it just that I don’t understand

Exactly how it works?

Is it me projecting excitement and joy

Onto something mundane?

Surely anyone can see

The shimmer of magic?
