With a dazzle dance, a star is born
to linger into the when
and what of time
do they know or remember?
And does a ghost eye eternity
with darkness or cool calm?
If is the faint trace of a kiss,
~in the vast before~
there was a laughing breeze
that healed hearts–
open a window—
look for the brilliant cloud,
a pink blush wrapped in blue,
carrying the magic of ever
and after, reach for its shadows and light.
Another variation on the puente form from the Oracle.
Beautiful, Merrill. I love the opening line! Congratulations on your recent publications! Enjoy your weekend.
Thank you very much, Jill. Enjoy your weekend, too! Stay cool!
As a lover of deep space pics, the image and your words are paired well. Just like in your last verse – magic!
Hi, Frank! Thank you very much.
Have you seen the recent close-up photos of the sun?
Yes … spectacular!
All those questions and beautiful answers. You’re right, the Oracle was in didactic mode today. I think the comet might have something to do with it 🙂
Thank you very much–and you could be right about the comet. I hadn’t thought of that, even though I almost posted a comet photo that I saw in my WP collection that I must have used for. . .something. 😀
The sky is beautifully clear tonight so I shall be glued to it in a few minutes, watching it doing…nothing 🙂
Enjoy. I’m sure the sky is doing something, though you may not be. 😏
The comet had moved. It’s almost level with a star. Don’t ask me which one!
OK. I won’t, but you could make up one, I’d believe it. 😏 I tried looking a bit the other night, but there are too many mosquitoes, so I don’t want to stand outside.
All the mosquitoes are inside here 🙂
She definitely wants us to look at the larger picture today. Perhaps it is the comet. Suzanne wrote a whole post about it yesterday. Follow the light. (K)
Yes, indeed. Jane also mentioned the Oracle might be influenced by the comet.
Thank you, Derrick.
This is beautiful Merril
Thank you so much, Jude!
My pleasure Merrill
I wouldn’t mind crossing that bridge into the vast before, if I could bring some of the magic back with me.
Ahh–good point! Thank you, Liz!
You’re welcome, Merril!
