The Magicians – wise words from a wise woman
Yesterday my wise and wonderful friend Val Garrett came to a Find Your Inner Unicorn workshop here at my home in Whalley Range, in which we focused on our purpose and legacy. Val’s poem captures her experience of the day and expresses her purpose of sharing wise, and magical, words that have value for others.
I want to mention our extraordinary chef too, Eddie Shepherd, who made the most exquisite food materialise out of thin air and literally in a puff of smoke! Have a look at www.walledgardensfood.com to understand what he does and how to book onto his supper clubs.
Here is Val’s poem . . .
The Unicorn and Food Magicians
A blessing of Unicorns met in a special place
To share their purpose and relax in the space
They gathered in a haven where many women had met before
Unknowing the wonder behind each door
The goddess of Unicorns inspired us to believe
In all of our gifts and what we can achieve
Using wizardly wisdom beyond her years
We revealed our greatest challenges, and some of our fears
Not content with the programme full of joy and light
We were led round a path to further delight
Within the walled gardens through an ordinary door
No one could have guessed what was next in store
The food magician welcomed us into his culinary lair
With coloured tofu delights that hung in mid air
We drank from the cauldron that smoked with pink infusion
And the sweet sticky rainbow whistle draped in illusion
He worked magic with the mushrooms but not as you might think!
They’d been lovingly prepared, 4 times – not just washed in the sink
Served as a spoonful, ‘I want more’ they all begged
Then the potato arrived disguised as a nest egg
The divine chunks of bread came with butter – handmade of course
Leaving little room for the Haloumi in dill sauce
And just when you thought you could eat not another snaffle
Fizz bang, rich chocolate – the bergamot truffle
There was simply no room to sample the Unicorn cup cakes
Or the crunchy chocolates – for our tummies sake
We all took them home to wonder at our own pace
The wonderful experience that these magicians can create
