A dream rose from time
and above the moon,
whispering if in honeyed tones
and recalling the diamond light
of a thousand blue stars
she is still,
but soars as a bird
in her slumber
singing of love,
while the music of water and wind
sighs a chant of life and after
The Oracle really made me work this morning for this puente. I’m taking my friend Jane’s advice to make this a collaborative effort, filling in a few spaces when necessary.
Thank you very much!
It’s lovely! Even if she did make you work for it. We have so many of the same images. Like collages made from the same images swapped around for different effects. I also had purple but it slipped away somehow.
Thank you! I like that idea of collages made and swapped around. 🙂
I think I have so many things going on in my head and so many different writing projects, the Oracle just wanted me to focus.
She made you focus on some simple beauties. That’s often her tactic 🙂
You’re right! 🙂
This is really beautiful, Merril. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your Saturday!
Thank you so much, Jill! Enjoy yours, too!
I like the double meaning of rose in the first line. This is wonderfully peaceful.
I couldn’t get anywhere with mine this morning. later…(K)
Thank you very much.
I felt like I couldn’t get anything else done until I did this yesterday morning. I see that the Oracle finally did come through for you. 🙂
I realize I need to have my mind clear to talk to the Oracle. If I’m distracted, it won’t work.
Yes, me, as well–but sometimes she forces me to clear my mind, if that makes sense.
This is wonderful Merril, so beautiful!
Thank you so much, Holly!
It’s my pleasure Merril. You’re poetry is beautiful!
Jane gives good advice, and I’m sure the Oracle doesn’t mind some collaboration 😉 Beautiful puente. The last lines–while the music of water and wind / sighs a chant of life and after–reminds me of the peace and calm I feel when I’m lucky enough to hear the soft bubbling of water in a stream or the wind through sifting the needles of long leaf pines.
Thank you, Marie.
You paint a peaceful scene–something I enjoy very much, as well, well I come across it.
Pretty language and images. Sometimes we need to work harder than others! But it was worth it.
Thank you very much, Luanne!
So beautiful. I love how you do this.
Aww–thank you, Dale!
Beauty woven with the materials you were given
Thank you very much, Derrick!
