Puff Of Smoke

He waved a stick called a wand and a puff of blue smoke came out, like magic.

Puff of Smoke is a poem written by Lynn White and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme The Best Bad Idea for the month of January

 

Puff Of Smoke

 

I remember the children’s party.
There was a magician.
I’d never seen a magician before.
He waved a stick called a wand
and a puff of blue smoke came out,
like magic.
And hidden in the smoke were flowers,
real flowers
showing through a gap in the smoke.
Since then
I have discovered that some people
can usually find a gap in the smoke
where the light shines through,
like magic.
Usually.

I live in north Wales. I have been writing at various points in my life since I was in my teens. My work is influenced by issues of social justice and events, places and people I has known or imagined. I am especially interested in exploring the boundaries of dream, fantasy and reality.
