Worth A Chance

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille #100:  “Abacadabra!  Where’s My Magic Wand?” – (posted by Linda Lee Lyberg)

“With all the craziness going on around the entire world with COVID-19, I thought we might enjoy a little diversion into a world of fantasy and…MAGIC! Yes, today’s word will be magic to use as you see fit in any form. Please feel free to make up your own word as long as it contains Magic within!”

A genie shimmies
out of a bottle. She
offers three wishes.
Try it. Worst thing
that could happen is
they do not come true,
and scenario was
a dream. If they do
come true, you will be
certain there is
magic in this world.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
