I watch purple shadows dance, lingering
with cool kisses in the air
as the sun shines pink-petaled on blue–
listen, sky and water say,
and the music is in my head
as if honeyed light is fiddle and voice,
recalling dreams, and the way the moon sings
through a storm. Remember this, blushing clouds,
the soft secret smiles of the universe, sailing into
after. The wild magic surrounds you. Embrace it.
Today’s message from the Magnetic Poetry Oracle–she, of course, sees me walking by the river.
Utterly beautiful. She does know your morning ritual, doesn’t she?
She does–and she knows Jane’s too. 😀 I guess when you’re an Oracle, you really do know everything.
One day… one day I shall succeed! 😉
You two have been in cahoots with her for quite a while!
Yes, we have. 😀
Thank you for spot of beauty for a gray November day. Much appreciated.
Thank you very much, Liz!
You’re welcome, Merril!
Amazing how similar our 3 images are in feeling. Yes, three different angles of the same idea–look and listen to the beauty of each new day. (K)
Thank you for sharing your beautiful poetry and gorgeous photo, Merril!
Thank you for leaving such a lovely comment, Jill!
Yes! We are all in tune today, all water and sky and moons, as well as rose (pink) petals. It’s a huge open canvas, and there’s a hint of Yeats in it—’the music (fire) is in my head’. Loved this one 🙂
Thank you so much. A hint of Yeats is high praise indeed! ❤️ We are all definitely in tune today.
Something in the air 🙂
Love this: “The wild magic surrounds you. Embrace it.” I think it does. You certainly seem to be capturing it in your photos and words. 🙂
Thank you so much, Robin!
Once again your language invites us to linger – as does the photograph you describe so well
Thank you very much for your kind words, Derrick.
Magical and beautiful … well done, Merril.
Thank you very much, Frank!
I so loved this!!!
Thank you so much!
