Day fast approaches–
peach glimmers lie beyond,
but now moonlight sings, a rhapsody of silver rills
joining star-song, an ancient stream,
like ghosts within, their faint echo lingers,
the always of past carried on the universe’s waves
coursing through brain and heart.
Now, the music murmurs secrets—
sea-tongued murmurs, rain chants, join the moon’s music,
sky-diamonds chime and plaintive violin notes
fall from rooftops,
whispering if, whispering when
we meet in dream-time wanderings
what comes after?
I’m taking a work break to post my poem from the Oracle because who knows what might happen if I don’t. I don’t want to find out! I have projects to complete by Tuesday, so I’m behind on reading and responding to comments and reading others’ posts, but I will get to them!
Tuesday afternoon (evening his time), I’ll be taking part in Damien Donnelly’s winter festive poetry party, Deck the Storms. Damien is the host and producer of the poetry podcast Eat the Storms. He is also a talented poet and wonderful person, who has thoughtfully scheduled this event as a birthday eve party for me! 😏 It’s free, but you need an Eventbrite ticket to attend this Zoom event. Here is the information.

🙂 Thank you as well for sharing so many interesting poetry. Enjoy a nice rest of the weekend! xx Michael
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing, and enjoy a beautiful weekend! xx Michael
Thank you very much, Michael. I hope you have a beautiful weekend, too.
‘a rhapsody of silver rills’ chimes with my poetic visit to the Lake District 😊 good luck meeting your deadlines, and enjoy your evening of poetry!
Thank you, Ingrid. You’re right, it does fit. 😀
Sounds like fun, Merril. Enjoy yourself!
Thanks so much, Dora!
This makes me think of Orpheus dreaming of Euridice before he went to get her back. Knowing what happened makes the ending poignant.
I wasn’t writing to the image, but you’re right that if you think of Orpheus, it is quite poignant.
I didn’t expect you’d chosen the image first, but you know how the Oracle works. She knows what she wants to say, and she has one of her favourite paintings in mind to illustrate it. We just have to pick out which one she intended 🙂
This painting is a perfect illustration for my Oracle message as well. We are burrowing deep. (K)
It was probably in my mind because Jane used it recently.
Damien’s scheduled a birthday eve party in your honor. Wonderful! 😀
Well, you know it’s just a coincidence, but I’ll take it! 😀
What fun! Don’t forget the wine, Merril. 🙂
I was confused at first because I thought you meant the poem. I’ll probably stick to water for the event, but wine after at dinner. 😏
An exquisite poetry with stunning imagery. Captivating title and beautiful piece on the whole. Loved it! Good luck keeping up with all your deadlines.
Thank you so much for your kind words and wishes!
You accomplish so much of this excellent quality in the time available, Merril
Thank you very much, Derrick! My other writing is not nearly as much as enjoyable to write.
I agree, Derrick. It’s really remarkable.
Happy Birthday, in advance! Yay! I’m usually belated…..
You and the Oracle have written, much to my smitten, another sweet prose.
Agree, best you wrote this. The Oracle is beyond control.
No need to tempt fate!
Thank you! 😀
Wishing you birthday blessings to last the whole year through! Beautiful post!!! 🙂
Aww–thank you so much, Linda! 💙
You made music through words without musical instruments. Well done, Merril!
Thank you, Frank! 😀
