Tranceformation (from a dream)

I went down to the spring
to conjure a spell
but a spell was cast on me

watery script bubbled
out of the vent
“Be still and watch” it read

bending over the water
cupping my hand
I drank the elixir of youth

looked again across the spring
startled to encounter
wild panther at the water

sandy furred, green-eyed
the catamount
drank that elixir too

shocked and shifted
spirit lifted
gazed down again to see

not my face, but
a green-eyed cat’s
peering back at me
