Courage.
Enchantment.
Permission
to work magic.
Persistence!
You have it -
divinity.

Sort of found poem from the table of contents of Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic.  For The Tuesday Platform at Real Toads.

Such a novel approach... (Oops.. I didn't intend the pun)

Often the talent is in seeing what others have not. Wonderful poem.

Simple lines that feel like a battle song. I really like this.

I especially love the line, "Permission to work magic."

How many words was this? Eleven? Yowza!

I love this poem.

Especially "Permission (purr mission) to work magic."

And the end, the divinity, makes me think of my grandmother and making candy. I'm the divinity-maker in our family, but my grandma was the one for whom I started making it. She made everything else homemade, but that was the one thing she bought from the grocery store, at Christmastime, of course.

I suspect that what you found is what you read for.

"Permission to work magic" ... you always do!
