My little Nostradamus peers trance-like
into his own mirror of Galadriel
visions reflected for but a moment
before he's off throwing
a pebble into another scrying pool
changing the color, ebb, and flow
of nature's Magic 8-Ball
of fate once again.

Today I am linking this with dVerse Poet's Pub Open Link Night. I wrote this over a year ago.
Scrying - a magic practice of seeing things physically in a medium (cyrstal, stone, mirror, water, fire, smoke)
Nostradamus - A famous 16th century scryer.
Mirror of Galadriel - a basin filled with water in which one may see visions of the past present and future, appearing in The Lord of the Rings.
