here’s to crystal magic, clink!
cool and clearest,
p e a c e
in the vacuum of purple night
of unseen and
a magic so hidden
you scarce believe in its reality..
for they say, it is the most real thing there is.
light of all light
but yes, conscionable.
clinking glass and platefuls..
musically cheery and
reflecting glamour and light
what a happy night!
faces are smiling, lips moving, masterful chatter
beautiful shimmers, radiant!

and in magic, we are told,
and perhaps we pray,
and maybe we can really try to believe..
a practice of faith,
in action, yes, perhaps there IS
