A laugh from the sky–
and in a broken breath
a dazzle cloud of joy dances
into the morning
~like a soft ghost~
time flies in eternal rhythms
of almost and ifs
but we remember,
the brilliant kisses of the universe
I’ve written almost a thousand words this morning, so I took a very short break to consult the Oracle. I haven’t had much time to write poetry this week. We collaborated on this puente, but I’m pleased she’s in a good mood.
I’m glad you took time out to send us this beauty! The Oracle is in rare form!
Thank you very much, Holly. She really is! 🙂
I’m sorry I haven’t been around much. My book manuscript is due in a few days!
That’s so exciting, I can’t wait to see the finished book!
It’s not a fun book–a reference book on sexual harassment. I was just writing about Fox News. After it’s done, I can work on more poetry!
A serious issue we all need to read and learn more about!
Lovely! And so very similar in the words and in the tone! The Oracle was very definitely looking up into the sky today and laughing 🙂 I wonder how Kerfe’s poem will turn out?
Thank you. That would be so funny if Kerfe had clouds and laughter, too!
I’ll keep a look out for her notifications. Kerfe is one of the few blogs I actually get a notification from. I get two in fact for her posts.
Great job on your word count, Merril! I’m right there with you. Hopefully this beautiful piece you’ve written with promote additional words. Enjoy your Saturday! Our heat is gone…yay!
Thanks so much, Jill. Yes, I’m on a deadline–my book manuscript is due.
Good luck with your writing and weekend! It’s actually chilly here today, but sunny, so I’ll take it!
Good luck with the deadline…I’m on one too, but trying to get way ahead in case any family emergencies pop up. I know you can relate. Enjoy the sunshine! 🙂
Congrats on the 1000 words!
And lucky for us, you took the time to share this lovely puente with us.
Thank you very much, Dale!
Good luck with the deadline. The Oracle knew you needed a bit of fresh air. (K)
Thanks, yes. And we did go out in the afternoon.
I will post my message from the Oracle soon… busy day yesterday.
‘a dazzle cloud of joy dances
into the morning’
is a delightful couplet
Thank you very much, Derrick!
