The Mysterious Crystal Ball

             The Mysterious Crystal Ball

Is this glass sphere a Gothic masterpiece of time
or a mere ball of glass with no significance at all
The Crystal Ball to a scorceror or fortune teller
is an amazing camera obscurer window to the future.
When people of all walks of life, want to know what
their fortune will be, they are told by the user of this 
medium, be it true or false, relies mainly on luck or chance.
Back in the days of the great Harry Houdini, this innocent
Crystal Ball, was used for a darker side, to swindle people
out of their life savings, when used by evil pretenders in 
seances but these criminals were exposed by the master 
illusionist himself, Harry Houdini, which goes to prove 
there is an evil purpose for everything.

    Hi Anne Lise, thank you for commenting, this is one of my older poems I have posted, I started with my first poem "Life" around 2000, I took a long break and started again in 2013 I almost stopped completely but was encouraged to continue by a dear friend.
