If I had magic

If I had magic

                                 If I had magic

Johnnie walked the California Fault line alone. Looking for a ancient and holy place.
The desert mountain hard and her natural beauty.
Perfect place to hide wishing wells and to burn some sage.
A place to pray.



Once I knew anger, war and greed.
Now I sit by Captain Jack, great Chief of the Modoc tribe, hidden waterfall.
I whispered silently to Captain Jack.
We lost great warrior.
Men is killing nature and killing each other.
I come to you, praying for a wish.
To make some wishes into the waterfall and the mountains.

                  If I had magic

If I had magic.
I would wish for every child to have shelter, food and safe place to live.
I would wish for the men of war to become men of peace.
They would send water, food and medicine instead of soldiers and guns.

I burn my lavender sage near the waterfall.
I pray all women and children are safe from violence.
I pray we allow our children to stay young and clean.
Clean of the knowledge of war, death and blood.
Allow our children to learn skills and trade.

If I had magic.
You and I.
Wouldn't fear each other.
We would be friends.
We wouldn't see color, race or belief.
We would see a person who need love, who need kindness and
who want opportunity to do great things.

If I had magic.
I would make the men who hate the earth.
Quit digging-up the earth for the oil.
Quit dropping waste and poison into the rivers, the lakes and the sea.
Quit chopping down the trees in the great forest and the beautiful tropical  forest.

If I had magic.
I would stand with a billion people.
All of us knowing.
We are. One people and one earth.
We would demand the end to separation and demand the end of war.

If I had magic.
You and I.
Would know only laughter and joy.
War and hate would be.
Myth and tale only.
                      John Castellenas/Coyote

What a wonderful spell you cast with your words! You do have magic in your poetry and verse. A good friend of mine once said that the measure of a man can be found in his prayer. Whatever we worship, we strive to become. Thus, if a man worship a god of vengeance, hate, destruction and death...he will become warlike. But if he worships a god of peace, love, creation and life...he will strive to become a minister of justice for all with truth and peace at the center of all things.Your prayer is beautiful my friend and a fitting representation of your spirit. I enjoyed every word.

We have magic. Helping children reach for a dream. Preparing food for those needing a meal. Consoling the downhearted. All a touch of slight of hand, while we wander away.

Thank you my friend for reading and the comment. I pray for calm and peace daily and often.
This is beautiful. If each of us had just a grain of that magic, we could do great things. The thing is, I believe we do have that magic. You do. I do. Everyone who shares these dreams and wishes and prayers has a little of it. We just have to weave it together, into a whole piece.

Beautifully expressed, my friend! ((( hugs )))

Thank you for reading and the comment. I worry for our world.
Good wishes would save many lives could it only throw off the balance off for a little while until man got mad enough to curl their hair in a style unheard of by many but still would become the trend of the day and many would say do away with these strange ways no matter what you may think there are always for fighters in men to complete I Two would love World Peace but would the world extend to ease our pain for I think Man has Blood shed on the brain.That's a sorry thing to say.

If only John if only. The pollution in rivers, on land, in the air is too frightening to even think about. A nice write on hope.

I enjoyed the poem and I could really imagine it being sung in a song over an acoustic guitar. As I was reading it I heard Willie Nelson's voice which was really an interesting phenomenon. I quite enjoyed this poem!

OMG!! I wish you had the magical ability to cast such a spell over all the earth. Perhaps if all the like minded people of the earth got together and cast our spell it would work. Your prayer, I'm sure is in the mind of millions, if not billions, it should work.

Take care - Dave
