Into the Mystique

Picasso: Faun, Horse and Bird, 1936

There’s magic to be found
for those with open minds,
mysteries abound
that go unseen by human eyes;
tales of old still told—
secrets passed from kin to kin,
that blatant non-believers
will attempt to criticize.
“Fairy Tales” they whisper, just
in case someone should hear
for if such creatures manifest
has never proven clear.
Dancing on the fringes
of our reality,
perhaps such creatures do exist…
perhaps they’re fantasy

  1. smiles...all it does take is an open mind...and open eyes as well....and ear....there are stories...and there is magic still int he world...you just have to look at little harder...smiles...

    1. I couldn't agree with your more, Brian! *smiles* Thanks for your take on it too, Ginny.

  2. well done..enjoyed your words and thanks for sharing

  3. Open mind, open heart, open eyes...how boring are those who don't see the magic in the world. I love your poem!!

  4. Magical lines. I enjoyed every verse. It is a beautiful take on Picasso's art. Thanks for your visit as well.

  5. I always believe they do exist somewhere, if not in this world then surely in some other world !!!

  6. Perhaps they are fantasy but they capture our imagination and you've woven that well into your poem.

  7. The magical and fantastic have a wonderful spot in my imagination ... if that means I have an open mind, all the better! What a fun poem!

  8. Always magic here, Ginny...delightful...

  9. It's certainly true, we can't live life without fantasy and belief.
