Jilted. Received wedding invitation. Sent regrets.
Response to JI Rogers’ Six Word Story Challenge prompt “Regret”
What is magic? abracadabra. smoke & mirrors. witches. wizards. fantasy. astrology. numerology. science. religion. music. art. a good book. creation. birth. growth. spring flowers breaking through the snow. caterpillar into butterfly. tadpole into frog. fetus into baby. child’s laugh. first love. lover’s caress. sex. intimacy. soulmates.
Magic is instantaneous. fragile. evanescent. ephemeral.
When it happens, are you surprised? awed? dazzled? grateful?
While it lingers, do you cherish? nurture? embrace?
When it fades, do you cling? grasp?
When it’s gone, do you mourn? ache? yearn? chase?
Life is magic.
Love is magic.
Magic is (only) magic.
