Real Unreality – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

dVerse Poets – Quadrille – Magic.

Linda at dVerse has invited us to write a Quadrille (44 words) on magic.




“Magic lies in challenging what seems impossible.”  Carol Moseley Braun


Real Unreality

Reality is never anything but
an imperfect substitution laid
across the psychic landscape,
set to fool the mind’s eye,
a fickle reign, until
depth calls to depth
an un-curated magic of soul
from the crucible of rituals,
a real unreality of
healing disruption.

  7. Enjoy this line “from the crucible of rituals” very much. Thank you for sharing the thoughts. I think, inspired by Plato too? 😉 Best wishes, and stay save, Paul!
