Mere Mortals with Magic

I have been fortunate to spend the past few days in the midst of magic.

I was in the presence of the work of two creative minds in the same location

on the night of a full moon.

I am amazed that both my head and heart did not explode from the beauty and joy.

I was on the grounds of Biltmore Estate in Asheville.

This is the castle created by George Vanderbilt.

On display throughout the grounds and inside the palace

were the dazzling glass sculptures of Dale Chihuly.

Their magical spirits created mind-boggling beauty.

I am so grateful when mortals are given a glimmer of higher power

to share with the rest of us,

as Prometheus shared the flame

to enlighten and inspire

a mere mortal like me.
