Some Thoughts on Magic

Sometimes we mistake magic for ordinary.
An egg is magic.
So are a seed, a blossom, a child.

Why is it that the religious fear magic
but believe the unbelievable?

Science and magic are not mutually exclusive.
That spark of electricity is both
real and magical.
So is the atom you cannot see,
only its manifestations,
its aggregates.

The universe is unexplainable, but
scientists keep looking for explanations
and finding them.

Putting magic into a story is one way
to get many middle schoolers to read.

To share magic, read to a child.
To share magic, laugh with a friend.

Wait! Magic is magic!
