Some believe that life ceases to surprise us as we age –that boredom sets in. However, the wonders of the human spirit still surprise me –not necessarily the spirit of my contemporaries, as I fear we have become victims of predictability.

Poem… Book of Spells |page five | Prince Connell’s Grave | Stonehenge


by Luis S. González-Acevedo…

Book of Spells

Page Five

I.

Prince Connell’s Grave

The book you seek
and the one who benefits from its spells
await at the stony feet
of royalty, protected by Prince Connell’s
Grave. The love & lust of lovers’ fate
severed by an ocean –the Book of Spells may save.

II.

Stonehenge

Within the field and meadow
of an ancient forest passed
lies Stonehenge, megalithic echo
of heroic stories, songs and our immemorial past.

Among its magic stones recite
the final verses in the Book of Spells inscribed.
The wonderlust of love ignite
for those in love and severed by the sea’s divide.
