Blog changes

In an effort to get this blog back on track I have simplified it, deleted some of the attached one-topic blogs
and focused on Sabbats and Esbats, which was the original intent.
Other writings will be in 'stumbling upon the path of the goddess'
and the Borrowed Book of Charms is still active.

a world without witches...

Can you imagine a world without witches,

A world with all people the same?

Where the only known dragons are hiding in books,

And children are terribly tame?

A world without magic would be sad indeed.

I cannot imagine the pain

Of having a world where there's no Santa Claus,

Where wizards are searched for in vain.

Can you imagine a world without spells,

That science and businesses run?

And think of the sadness a unicorn feels

When he no longer plays in the sun.

Can you imagine a world without witches,

No elves and no magical pools?

And can you imagine how dull it would be

If all that we had were the schools?

I cannot imagine a world without witches,

A world with no magical wand.

A world without beauty, or even a dream,

Or a wood sprite of whom to be fond.

They say I should grow up and be more mature,

Like a normal adult ought to do.

But I'd rather, at night, go to dance with a witch,

And I'll bet that you feel that way, too.

Can you Imagine?
By Robert F. Potts


  1. no celestite, i just can not imagine........
    i dont even want to try- i have been me for so long now, me living in this magical, any thing is possible world of ours.........

  2. I cannot either! What boredom that would be...

  3. I wou;ldn't like that place much. Beautifully written.

  4. Yes, you're absolutely right - I do feel that way, too!

  5. I found you by way of one of my followers who also follows you. This is a wonderful poem and perfectly right. A world without magic is insupportable. I have taught my children never to step on mushrooms because a fairy might be living there. We firmly believe that dragons come in all shapes and sizes, both good and evil. I will be back again. The waterfall picture is exquisite.

  6. I would never want to go back to the mundane world - life is so much better being a witch. Thank you so much for sharing :-)
