Dawn Magic


I am not adverse to science,
but when I speak of lightening skies
filled with reds, pinks and golds,
of clouds and rippling water,
of silhouetted flocks of gulls,
I do not want to be told
of Rayleigh scattering
or wavelengths of visible light

These things are irrelevant
to the universe of magic:

I have walked
on the beach
at dawn
in Golden Bay.
