The air shimmered
with the promise of wonder
and the weight of magic.
Wide eyes stalked wizard staffs
held motionless –
b u i l d i n g . . .
wrenched sobs and screams
from the vulnerable and wary,
gleefully delicious squeals
from thrill seekers
delighting in the adrenaline rush.
Spells clashed, sending jagged spears
of lightning through the roiling clouds.
Incantations shivered across every surface.
A new legend would begin tomorrow….
for those who survived the celebrations.
