In shadow dreams,
the moon whispers, honey-voiced,
of wonders and if
love comes like a summer storm
but bring a cat–
for time circles
haunted by almost and never—
through open windows—look, listen
as the universe laughs
in sparkling light
a spray of diamonds on velvet,
beyond reach, but constant.
It took some time to get my message from the Oracle today–though she was very clear about the cat and champagne.
Beautiful, champagne and cuddly cats. What could be better?
I know, right? The Oracle knows! 🙂
He/she knows for sure!
Definitely she. 😀
I thought so ! 🌺
Our poems are similar give or take the anguish at the beginning. We both had moon shadows, and drinking! Why not champagne? And we both ended up with the laughing stars. Laughing stars is quite a coincidence 🙂
I know! It was the laughing stars that really stood out to me as strange (or not) for us both to have included. 😀
What could be better then cats in Champaign? Sounds like the perfect combination. Well done, Marylin!
Sorry, Merril. I’m using the dictating feature and it’s spelled Marylin by mistake. 😉
Thank you–though I think cats and champagne. 😀
LOL! I guess I need to speak more clearly. 🙂
I’ve never tried dictating. I can’t imagine what mine would look like. 🤣
Well, I’m probably straining my wrist even more trying to correct the errors! 🙂
Oh dear! Don’t do that!
That is a lovely combination—cats and champagne. And there’s love coming “like a summer storm.” Nice! 😊
Thank you very much, Marie. The Oracle knows! 😀
I’ll take the shadow dreams and the moon whispers and forgo the cat and the champagne. 😉
I’m not actually all that fond of champagne, but I do love my cat (down to one now).
Oh I love it! 🍾🐱
Thank you, Katy!
A honey-voiced moon can be intoxicating… add the champagne, summer storm and sparkling light and who knows what will happen?
Lovely, as always!
Thank you very much! 😀
So very good! 😊
A good combination and plenty of storms around to bring love. (K)
From shadow dreams to sparkling light beautifully done
Thank you very much, Derrick.
I’m so intrigued by this oracle. Each post I see her mentioned
You can check her out for yourself, and see what happens, but there may be an adjustment period while you get to know each other. 😉 https://magneticpoetry.com/pages/play-online
Thank you Merril 🤗
A cat and champagne. The Oracle is very wise. 🙂
She is, isn’t she? 😀
“a spray of diamonds on velvet, / beyond reach, but constant.”
Thank you so much, Ken!
This is wonderful! The cat and champagne add pearls to your diamonds on velvet.
Thank you, Resa! I like pearls, too. 😀
