Custous Angelus

(Before AD / Old Earth)


Magic is lost in 21st century
Maybe there were magic before
Maybe during the ancient times magic was once common
But no one believes in magic now
We sneer at the word magic
And dismiss it as if it was a child’s play
Or a laughable idea from some unstable person
But is all magic truly lost?
Has humanity lost all of her magic?
No there is still one magic
That does good to all
And bears no ill consequences
That magic is called smile
People all around the globe smile
We may not speak the same language
We may not come from the same culture
We may not share a single drop of blood
But all of us understand the meaning behind a simple smile
Meaning I bear you no harm
Meaning I wish you good will
Meaning I welcome you
It makes stubborn people to yield
Sad to be merry
Hurt people to open up
Old to rejuvenate
Tensed to relax
And most importantly it makes people to love
Even in a hard situation
Where no ray of hope touches
A smile will radiate will pure joy
Giving people hope when there is no reason to be hopeful
Smile has done impossible deeds
Smile is the most simple and the most powerful magic

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
