Poem: "The Field of Phantasmagoria"

This poem came out of the May 2013 crowdfunding Creative Jam.  It was inspired by a prompt from siege.  It fills the #8 Phantasmagoria slot in the Rainbowfic Moonlight list.  It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette.


The Field of Phantasmagoria


The spectrum is twisted and bent
like the arc of a golden torc, its two ends
snarling at each other across the gap.

On the right side lie science and logic;
on the left side lie magic and intuition.
Their practioners mumble and glare,
each believing the other a fool.

Every once in a while,
a sorcerer explores methodology,
a scientist experiments with mystery.

They are thought mad,
who leap into the gap between the ends,
but in truth they are the rare masters
of the field of phantasmagoria
which draws its strength
from the spectrum entire.
